What type of sleeve is she putting on it?

I own a somewhat similar dress with elbow length sleeves and I totally love it.  I can’t see the dress with 2/4 length sleeves, but I think a longer short sleeve would be very pretty.

Here’s a dress with fitted bodice, v neck, pleated skirt and short sleeves

El Dorado 1950s Dress by Mr Eddie| Tialey Vintage Clothing

here’s one with 3/4 sleeves

The final look will depend a lot on the fabric used.

I love it!  I think it would look really cute with an elbow length sleeve (maybe even 3/4) in a sheer white fabric.  I really can only picture it in my head as a sheer, tight-fitting sleeve.  Maybe with an embroidered or slightly embilleshed edge?  I think it could be really cute!

Maybe a 3/4 inch sheer sleeve.  Or a cap sleeve.  Maybe she can give you a mock up so you can see what it would look like.

I like it without sleeves, but I think it would be cute with sleeves too!  Or you can cover up with a sweater or shawl if you want something extra.
