I'd like a different sleeve option for the Oliver and S Fairy tale dress. the pattern includes a sweet tulip sleeve. I have already successfully changed this to a standard sleeve. Now I really want to alter the pattern to a tiny little sleeve with very little or no ease at the cap. If any one has tips or links for sleeve drafting that you really like, I would appreciate it.

If you want little/no ease at the sleeve cap, try putting the front and back pieces together flat (overlapping the seam allowances) and then tracing that cap. Merge it with the rest of your successful standard sleeve.
