How To Add Butterfly Sleeves

Here's the easiest way to add butterfly sleeves to a top or dress.  We all have one top or dress that we always wished had sleeves. In this tutorial I am using the Tina top I shared with you two weeks ago.  I have to admit I prefer the top sleeveless but that is just me.  If you read the comments below the majority of you wished the top had sleeves.

Normally flutter sleeves are seen on a V-neck or wide round necklines since the shape of the sleeves tends to make the upper chest area wider.
