You did a really nice job on this dress. I love it with the long sleeves. Thank you. I might have to make a version up like this.

Nice dress! And thank you for the sleeve instructions. In my eyes, you are Einstein! And I agree that a long-sleeved version would be a nice addition to the printed pattern.

Good job - I'm all for adding sleeves to great no-sleeved dresses, and making them wearable for cool weather. So glad to see that it's possible with this pattern (which is in my sewing queue) with excellent results. Thanks!

Beautiful dress with the color of caramel. I like it very much with the sleeves.

Love this pattern in the crinkle polyester! Perfect fabric for the cowl and the waist draping. And the long sleeve version looks great.

Everyone...thanks! I'm so glad this was helpful! It looks like I was not the only one wanting a sleeve on this dress. Try's fun!

Very helpful review. I learned a lot from your tutorial and will put your technique to good use. I think I'll go with a 3/4 sleeve but now I have technique to get me there. Thanks!

Wow, you did a great job. Hopefully I will get the courage to try that...

Truly brilliant. I like this pattern, but with sleeves I love it! Of course now I need to make another 1250!

Hoorah - sleeves! I am a big sleeve fan and as much as I liked the look of all the great versions of this dress, there was one thing lacking for me and that was the sleeves! I do have the pattern and it was on my 'todo' list to draft some sleeves, so am I happy you've done it for me! Thanks for a great review and very informative details on your blog

WOW it's beautiful. I love the color, the fabric, the sleeves, the fit. It's great. Thank you for the sleeve info.

So much better than the envelope photo! Great fit, never mind for a muslin. Looks very good with the sleeves.

I like the idea of the long sleeve version and just happened to finish the B5495 pattern you used. I am about to embark on my first v1250. I love the look you achieved! Thanks for posting this review!
