Sleeves can certainly make a statement when it comes to a wedding dress. From slender lacy bracelet sleeves to Leg of Mutton (Super puffy), a sleeve detail can add intense drama to any wedding dress. Here we recommend some products for different sleeve shapes to consider.
We love the use of bold lace on this bell sleeve made by Stephanie Moran Couture. With a wider expanse of fabric going for a dramatic lace pattern will secure further impact and excitement, just like this fab image which uses ivory lace Pleasance.
A Bishop’s sleeve, with a fitted upper part and a flared lower part that are gathered at the wrist by a cuff, can secure a romantic and vintage feel to a dress. Detached from the dress itself it becomes a modern piece of theatre (Gracy Accad is a superb example). For a willowy, soft drape use a light silk chiffon such as Tempest. If you want the sleeve to keep its shape more go for a stiffer organza fabric such as Evolution or a poly based organza called Stardust.
Long fitted sleeves can really showcase the choice of lace on the skin and we love the way organic lines glide over the arms. For this on trend look we recommend beautiful ivory pearl lace Juliana, the sweeping lines of sequinned lace Dusk and the curved lines of brand new Appolline.
