 I'm going to be converting another one of my skirts into a dress... but I need to have some sort of sleeve. I was thinking of adding a sleeve that's sort of shaped like this:

 
 The black is the actual sleeve and the red is the dress. I'm not sure what that type of sleeve is called. Anyway, how exactly would I go about making it? Do I just cut a triangle, or do I make an attached ribbon thing and then stitch the sleeve to that?
 Sorry if I'm being confusing. I just don't know how else to say it. Any help would be very appreciated!

I've made a dress with a similar sleeve, I cut the pattern to look like a leaf narrow at one point then wider then narrow again. Cut this on the bias if possible.
Another way is to use the top section of the sleeve pattern, measure from the sleeve head to the length you want. Depending on the fabric being used you may need to put some elastic into the top of the sleeve so it stays on your shoulder. Hope I was able to help

 Thank you! Yes that does help. I'll probably do the thing with the eleastic, that was my problem before is that it was always falling off. Thank you again!
