How do you make sleeves for dresses?

So I bought my first sewing machine and with visions of all the things I want to create for my little girl I got patterns and set about making a dress. However I don't understand how to make sleeves and I can barely work the patterns because of the notations and other crap on it.. Any mommas have some easy sleeve tips? Thanks in advance!

OH MY THIS IS A HARD ONE!!!!    THE THING I COULD THINK OF IS GETTING SOMETHING OLD OF HERS AND JUST OPEN IT UP. MEANING CUTTING THE STRING OFF AND MEASURE IT!
