It seems like I have the problem with tops fitting fine until I sew in the sleeves. When I reach forward, about 2 inches down from the shoulder seam it is tight. I just am finishing up a princess seam blouse except for the buttons and buttonholes. The armholes are fine, plenty of room in the back, the bust area fits great. I cut the sleeves out plenty big for my biceps. Could this have something to do with the sleeve cap too high or too low or do I just need to make the sleeve bigger for large biceps?

Halley, your back view didn't come through. From your side view, I'm going to suggest that maybe you need to add a bit more at the back armhole. That's where I have one of my fitting concerns too. Also, your sleeves look really big...are you sure you need all that room in there? You have a cute little shape and the blouse is a super fit, but the sleeves look too big.
