Sleeves: You said you know how to make 'baseball sleeves' (this shape is called raglan), and to gather them in, you need to make the sleeve WIDER than the finished product, the fabric then needs to be gathered onto the white band.

The skirt is a circle skirt - if you're unsure how to go about this, have a look through the tutorials for helpful information.

Gloves: Trace around your hand on a piece of paper. Remove the tips of the fingers. Add a small seam allowance.  Trace a second version of this, and cut out a circle-ish shape from the back of the hand. Cut two of each in a stretchy fabric, add a strap around the wrist, with a button or press stud for closure.

Hope that helps  Smiley

whatthecraft.com will help you with those pesky circle skirts.
For your sleeves, make them looser than you want.  then take and ( you can do thi sby hand as well, machines are just faster) put your sewing machine on a really, really big stitch.  stitch all the way around the sleeve.  leave the threads kinda long and no back stitching.  pull the threads like a drawstring till the pink of the sleeves matches the length of the white band.  stitch them together and there you go!  If you want me to draw some pictures to show what I mean, let me know.  Everything I just said has worked for me, so it should for you!
