Butterfly Sleeves

This great mid-70's top with angel sleeves is something that can be easily made up for this summer, 30 years later.

1)A quick look at the pattern shapes on the back of the pattern envelope, and it is clearly a simple chemise top(A)gathered onto a lace border(B)across the upper edge.
2)The angel sleeves are really rectangular handkerchief shapes(C), with that same lace sewn around all 4 edges.
3)While wearing the chemise, the rectangles are centered over each shoulder strap and sewn in place.
Now doesnt' that seems fairly quick and easy to do?

If this seems like too much trouble, you can own the original vintage pattern, now selling on our Babylon Mall shop: Simplicity #7569, size L.
