Reclaim worn sleeves.
"So often sleeves wear out before their time. Butterick has prepared - special patterns to replace them.
If a sleeve is worn at the elbow, cut it off here and combine it with lace or chiffon (Ill. 155), or add a flare below the elbow, (Ill. 156). If it requires a whole new sleeve, give it dolman sleeves of contrasting fabric in matching color-chiffon sleeves for a velvet frock or velvet sleeves for a crepe frock."
