I shall now bring you up to date on this project.
First I sewed the sleeve as per instructions. It said to hem the 'cuff' before attaching to armhole.
I eased the sleevehead pinning it in place....

Then sewed both sleeves....

Now here is the complete shirt..well almost complete buttonholes still to be done.

|Back (inside out)|
I have a little problem. When trying it on I found my arm movement was severely restricted. If I tried to lift arms up and 90 degrees the armband dug into my arm. Thus I seem to be stuck with arms at my side with it. I cut the pattern accurately and followed the instructions.

Why is it not working?
Is there adjustments that need to be made....what are they?
To me it seemed like they needed to be wider at the armband....is this assumption correct?
