I'm sewing view A. I need a size 10 for my shoulders and a 16 everywhere else. How do I cut for the sleeve width to be a size 16? A size 10 makes the sleeve width too tight. Do I just taper out to a 16 from the neckline out? -- Edited on 6/23/13 3:27 PM --

OK, here's my first thought, assuming the pattern pieces look like I imagine: use the neckline and shoulder/top of sleeves from the size 10. Assuming the sleeves are tight just at the armhole, not the whole way down - start with a size 10 at the wrist, and taper to the size 16 by the time you get to the armpit area; stick with the size 16 for the side seams.
