I found a pattern with baby bloomers. If you want to email me your address, I will mail it to you. It is an older pattern but uncut and never used.

I will check and let you know when I get home this afternoon. If I have one maybe I can send it to you because I don't use it any more. My children are grown.

Here is the website where I got the armhole template. Just download and print. I used bias tape to finish the armholes.

I hope this helps.

This is how I make the dress: Depending on the size of dress your are making, mesure down 6-9 inches from the top ande mark (i usually use 8" for dresses 6-8)
Then messure from the outer edge 1 1/2 to 2 inches and mark
Draw a line from the first mark to second mark ( this is done on both sides of fabric and both sections)
Fold on the marked line to for armhole opening
You can stitch or use other method to fold
Pin right sides together and take in your normal seam allowance
Fold top of fabric down 1" to form casing for ribbon

Tips: Serge all edges
I use a length of eleastic cut to the width of finished top,
Insert the eleastic through casing and stich ends
Using he eleastic keeps the dress from falling off the shoulders
when ribbon becomes loose
Attach the ribbon for ties to eleastic with a small stiches-
I have found by using this armhole method makes putting the dress over
a shirt is not bulky around the arm

Hope this helps--happy sewing
