  3. Barb says:

    Love the dress but would like it with sleeves.
    Any plans for sleeves?

    1. Carrie Sample says:

      Yes, I was thinking the same thing….any way of giving Upton an “expansion pack” of a variety of sleeves?

  4. Carol W says:

    The sweetheart neckline on Heather’s shot taffeta… (the very last photo). I’d love to know how she managed to shape it so nicely. That neckline style would be on my wishlist of “expansion pack” options, along with types of sleeves!

Let me know what you think!
