I just can’t seem to find one…it looks simple enough but I’m so unsure of how to do the sleeves more than anything….

Any help would be great!

Thanks a lot

    Angel sleeve tablecloth frock! Like this one: http://betsyvintage.com/images/large/tendec/et830_LRG.jpg Good lord, I never dreamed there were patterns for these! I never bothered with one back in them daze… ;)

    Easy way:

    Get your round lace table cloth. Fold neatly in 4. Lay out on the floor!

    Take person for whom garment will be made: lie on tablecloth, with spine up fold and point on nape of neck… Pop arm out sideways to line up with top folds… Mark edge of neck with pin.

    Mark where underarm is. Get up off floor…

    Using a long ruler, mark a line from the underarm mark to the edge in a broad wedge. This will give the basic sleeve shape…

    Now, 3"-6" from that original underarm mark, PIN a line of stitches out to the hem, on both sides

    Using the neck pin as a guide, cut a circle out of the middle of the cloth. Be mean – the hole can be made larger, but not smaller. It needs to fit over your head.

    Unfold and try on. Adjust the pins in the side/underarm seamline to fit nicely. Take off…

    Cut up the pin line to make the sleeves. Sew the seams, and bind or overlock the seam allowances, especially if you use a lace tablecloth! Bind the neck.

    To make a jacket, cut up the center front and bind that along with the neck edge.
