This is the pattern I'm working from if it'll help...http://www.butterick.com/item/B5211.htm, deviant A. Can anyone give me some tips or a pattern please? Thanks!

From that picture, the sleeves look like rectangles (or possibly perfect squares) with one face attached to the armhole and left open at the bottom. Hard to tell, though.

Yup, was going to say the same thing.

I would try altering the patern something like this:


You would have to play around with the length of the "sleeves" however that is pretty easy - cut longer/wider than you think is necessary and trim away until you get what you want.

I think it would also be good if you could cut the dress/top out as one peice front and back - connected at the shoulders so there wouldn't be a seam at the shoulder and down the middle of the sleeve.

It also looks like there are some shoulder pads (with a sharp drop-off not a rounded edge) to make the break at the shoulder-arm area.

in addition to what elijor has said, it looks like there's slight gathering on the shoulders, and, for proportion reference, the bottom edge of the 'sleeves' would hit just above your elbow, if you were to put your arms straight out sideways.
