I’m having a love affair with sleeves. I know sleeves aren’t very common anymore and as such I’m having a hard time finding dresses with them. I know I could do the bolero thing but I would prefer to have sleeves attached to the gown – besides, I’m getting married in winter and I’m the perpetually cold type! I would love to see your dresses to get a better idea of what’s out there. I’m specifically curious to see if anyone has mod pics and price info of the following styles:
Jim Hjelm 8211
Jenny Lee 1306
The only sleeved dresses I could find are all basically knock-offs of Kate Middleton’s. Eh, what’s a girl to do?

I walked into the bridal shop with the Allure 8900 written down as my dream dress. They didn’t have it, and I knew I didn’t want to pay that much for a dress, so it was probably a good thing! I ended up buying a strapless dress and having custom sleeves added — with a V into the neckline and full back coverage and buttons like the Alure 8900. They even printed out the photo of the dress and stapled it to the tag on my dress so the seamstress could see what I liked. I had my final fitting today, and while the sleeves aren’t *exactly* the way I wanted them, they look like they belong with the dress, not like they were added as an afterthought. The cost was way less than we had expected, too.
So, if you’re having trouble finding a sleeved gown, custom work is an option, and some brands have dresses with sleeve options. I was eyeing some Alfred Angelo and Jasmine dresses that had sleeve attachments or could have been made with sleeves.

Here’s mine; I opted to add sleeves to my dress because hardly any dresses come with them!
You can have a seamstress add sleeves to any dress. Just pick out a style, ask if it will work, and be instrumental in the design process.

I also love sleeves. My sleeve/dress style is not similar to what you are looking at though.

I love this bride’s dress as well:
