If you found a dress you love I’m sure a seamstres or dressmaker could add lace sleeves to it! Sorry I don’t have any pics but just a thought to add. 🙂

I just did a search on the Pronovias website for you and found these dresses with lace sleeves. They’re all totally swoon-worthy!

Like you, I always envisioned myself wearing sleeves– plus I had poison ivy that I wanted to cover up. I had sleeves added to my gown:

I’m having lace sleeves added to my Enzoani Fatima. I’m doing this, because I’m Muslim, so i cant really go with the strapless dress. Most bridal salons/and some designers will custom add sleeves that look great. I am, however, paying a lot for them 300$ for extra material and $400 for “labor”. 

You should check out the Pronovias Pergola someone posted above, I was obsessed with it, but didn’t like it on me. The Elie by Elie Saab ones are great as well but way too pricey.

I also wanted a dress with lace sleeves (because it’s also what my mother had and they’re gorgeous) and was so excited when K.Middleton got married because that meant the fall lines would be full of lace!

I wore mine before the royal wedding. Monique Lhullier has a bunch.

@LittleMissPolkaDot: Yes, originally my dress was strapless. It’s an Allure C160, and here’s a picture of the back before the alterations woman overhauled it.
