My Comments:

So cute... I love dresses with full skirts! Full skirts and crinolines are one of my very favorite of the 40s and 50s fashions.  They are so elegant and feminine.  But I have to say, in general I prefer dresses with short sleeves.  If it's cold add a sweater, but you can always remove the sweater if it gets too warm.  BUT, in this case, I think I would definitely make the long sleeve version because of the French cuffs.  French cuffs are so very classy, in my opinion.  I have a cufflink collection of my own for this very reason.  I love to wear cufflinks!  More cufflinks should be worn!!!
