The effect of a sleeve or armhole on the design of a dress should never be underestimated. The shape, volume and length of a sleeve should be determined by the bride’s specific proportions. While the perfect sleeve can enhance a gown or downplay difficult arms, the wrong one will compromise the design of the dress and the look of the bride. The proportion of an armhole will always impact the construction of the sleeve and neckline. Sleeves can range from narrow, straight sleeves to wide sleeves, full sleeves to simply, sleeveless.
