So in Pushing Daisies, Chuck wears the CUTEST dress.  Its like a square collar, and I have that all figuired out.  My problem is, how do I make up a sleeve pattern?  Sleeves totally confuse me if I dont have a semi legit pattern.  Can someone Help me please?

What I normally do is just go and by a pattern for a dress that is similar and use the sleeve from it. If it doesn't fit then I add or subtract when needed.

Ditto to the previous post.

Also, you are assuming we all know exactly what dress you are talking about- I've never seen the show/movie/artist so I'm completely in the dark. Links are very handy Smiley

Back to your original question- it's a very standard fitted sleeve, should be pretty easy to retrofit one onto your pattern. Sleeves are the absolutely hardest thing to draft from scratch in my limited experience.

Yeah, sleeves confuse me intensely.
