DIY- set in sleeve part 1

I had always assumed that drafting a set in sleeve was way too difficult for me. That's the reason that most of the garments I have made are sleeveless.  A while back, I decided to see if I could figure out how to draft a sleeve without a pattern.

The following is what I have figured out. This method will work for a knit fabric. I have also used this method on not very fitted sleeves made out of a woven fabric.  I am assuming that you have already made a basic tank bodice and have sewn the shoulder seams together. I made lace sleeves, so you can see the contrast between the bodice and the sleeves.
