I tried searching for one... but yeah, searching for "sewing sleeves" is sort of impossible.  I'm a very new sewer and I am working on a doll pattern for my daughter.  I am working on the mock dress right now and I just don't get how to sew the sleeves in!  I need step by step instructions!

Yes, I found several.


No matter which method, you still need to sew slowly and carefully. Good luck!

A set in sleeve on a dolly dress? It might actually be easier to do that on a human sized blouse first.

Some things about toys & dolls are easier, some things are much, much harder when you scale them down. The good thing is dolly isn't going to complain if it's not perfect Cheesy

Oh, sorry. I didn't notice that you are making a doll's dress. In that case, it would be easiest to set the sleeve in before you sew up the side seams. I believe this is how the retail industry does it. It would be easy to check.
