Hmm..two months is a little tight! I know how hard long sleeve are to get! Have you thought about just adding a lace or cloth bolero to a simple dress for your figure type? Davids bridal and the limited have some nice affordable stuff you can ship right to your door. I got several dresses from there ( sold the ones I didn’t use) and ended up with this:


I altered a casablanca  1817

dress to look like this:

It was long bell sleeves and I made them 3/4ths. Light lace, no crinoline. i took the back out too.

@bearlove: You beat me to it! I was about to recommend this dress. I have a similar one (same brand, very similar dress without the sleeves) and it fits great (I’m also a size 16 hourglass and ordered the XL). It is very comfortable and surprisingly flattering. Overstock ships very fast and they have a very easy return policy. At the most, I think you would lose the return shipping, which is usually less than $6. It’a worth a shot!

You should look at IGIGI’s website they have beautiful dresses for under $500 (most are around $350) that you can order from their website or sometimes find in stores. They all seem to be sleeveless (not strapless) dresses, but they also have two beautiful bolero’s that have 3/4 length sleves.
