Opinions, please!

I need some opinions, pretty please. I've been working on Simplicity 2724 and am at a critical decision point. I cut the sleeves for the elbow length , but I think maybe it would be better with short. Hubby thinks sleeveless. What do you think? (You have to imagine them gathered an cuffed.)

I also started working on this cape for a sew-along at Sawyer Brook. Everyone should have more capes in their lives!

The dress is just lovely. I like sleeves, but that is just me. A jacket over the whole thing and you could wear it to the office. Without the jacket and with dressy jewelry and you're ready for a fancy dinner out. ;) Lovely.

I like dresses with longer sleeves, but I also think this one could be very beautiful sleeveless. What a great dress!

I think a short slightly puffy sleeve would look great.

Pretty dress! I think I would make the sleeves banded just above the elbows. That way, you still get some length, but I think above-the-elbow is comfier when bending your arms.

p.s. Cute cape too. I'm always tempted by capes, but just don't know if I would actually wear one.
