Hi all,

I have just started seeing so don't have much knowledge when it comes to changing patterns.

I am in love with the peasant dress at the moment and have seen many talented ladies doing a lace flutter type sleeve on them instead of just the normal fabric. (link to example of dress/sleeves am talking about http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b599/tessarat/photo_zps24aef34c.jpg)

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a tutorial / pattern that will show me how to do these sleeves. I have been searching for weeks with no luck but am desperate to make my daughter one.

Thanks Smiley

If you have a peasant blouse pattern, this will be easy.
Otherwise, the front and back are rectangles with a slight angle cut at the top where the arm holes are.
Cut the lace the same width as the sleeves.  No pattern?  Cut the about 2 times as wide as a normal sleeve.  Start with wide lace, since it is included in the drawstring/elastic casing. 
Attach the sleeves to the front and back at the top of the bodice pieces.  They will not go into the armpit.  You will need to hem the rest of the arm hole on the bodice.  When you sew the sides, mark the stopping point, since you won't sew clear up to the lace cap sleeves.
Fold over the elastic casing all the way around the top (sleeves, back and front).

Here is a great tutorial for making a peasant dress.  Just cut the lace for your sleeves and sew according the the directions.  Hem the armholes or use a bias tape to enclose the seams as the previous poster mentioned.
