I used the pattern Danielle for this. I made a front button-opening instead of the back zipper, and put the long sleeves. I planned the sleeves a bit shorter than normal length, and more fitted around the shoulders than the original. At first I put the tucks and the wristbands on the cuff, but it looked completely boring. I took the wristbands away and tried blah-blah-blah for a while, and ended up with the gathered cuffs with elastic bands. I don’t like the elastic-band-finishing in most cases, but I like it on this dress.
