I'm in the process of making a cotehardie and an underdress for it, and can not for the life of me find a sleeve tutorial for the underdress that has photos. I can't say I'm the best with diagrams, and the blog posts I've been seeing with DIY medieval garments seem to skip photos of the sleeve pieces.

The cotehardie itself is going to have tie-on sleeves, but the underdress/chemise needs attached sleeves

Anyone have any resources?

I have come across this
which may help it shows that the sleeve is set into this kind of garment with the seam of the sleeve running from the shoulder to the wrist on the outside of the arm. This should allow you to lace it closed as in your inspiration picture.

Crafting is my favorite waste of time.

Have you checked out the FABULOUS Costumer's Manifesto site?

check out (Costume) History sorted by Period --that would probably have some info for you.  If that fails, try Corsets & Underwear, or possibly Patterns.

Budget an hour or two to wander happily through the site, and bookmark it to come back later.
