Modifying sleeves requires a bit of knowledge/practice because of the curves involved. You can check out some seamstress books at the local library that may be helpful or search for web sites that may help.

Simplicity pattern 1291 view F. Instructions vague,ready to start sewing it together. Several pieces were cut on fold no indication if I keep them whole, my fleece does not march up with the size.

If the pattern instructs you to place the pattern on the fold, the folded fabric should be kept whole (do NOT cut the fold!).

You can probably contact Simplicity with your questions.

I need easier instructions for SIMPLICITY 1375. I'm using gauzy fabric for a cover up View C

The instructions provided with the pattern are most likely the only instructions available. Perhaps you should take the pattern to a fabric store and ask some of the knowledgeable people there how to sew it together.

Legthen sleeves on pattern simplicity 1945

usually the pattern is altered below the armpit area. Lengthening requires either tracing the piece and adding additional length by sliding the pattern piece the required amount. OR but cutting and adding in a piece of paper and retracing the cut lines.

This question doesn't really belong here... you need to go to a tailoring site. ;) I can suggest join and you will get lots of help from the forum pay a member fee and get online classes.
