With right sides facing, sew up the side seams of the tube and sew up the underarm seam of the sleeves. Hem the bottom of the sleeve and tube if needed

Cut three pieces of elastic

Place these elastic pieces in the top of the sleeve and tube, fold over the edge of the cloth over the elastic and top stitch in place.

Attach sleeves to tube by matching up side seam and underarm seam and sewing a horizontal line back and forth on the inside. And you are done !
