Thank you for the compliments!! I will put up a picture from the wedding once I figure out how to :) CissieW - Best compliment ever!! I worked so hard on this dress and I have made plenty of clothes but this is the first that I thought was good enough for PatternReview. Advanced beginner then?

ADVANCED BEGINNER? Then I am a total novice after several decades of sewing. No, this dress is a masterpiece. Based on the alterations you made, you are far along from advanced beginner. The dress is absolutely gorgeous! Nicely done!

What a beautiful wedding gown. Is the dress low in the back bodice or scooped like the front? That might be why the sleeves were a problem. It wouldn't matter what you did they would still drop if there wasn't enough fabric in the back bodice. Your dress is divine!

Thank you :) unainoz - The dress is quite low in the back. I've figured out that I need to take in centre front and centre back (with reshaping of the back) a few cm (will have to move pleats in to match). I didn't have this problem with the muslin though. So go figure.
