Hello,i'm having a problem flat sewing these sleeves since the armscye is bigger than the sleeve. I've only sewn 2 other shirts like this and the sleeves were bigger so I had to ease them in. Is this normal or could there have been a printing mistake on the pattern?

I've sewn quite a few like this, and never had a problem with the armholes. Did you check to make sure you cut the right size sleeve? If you did everything right, it could very well be a problem with the pattern.

Thanks for the reply JTink. I've ckecked the size twice I even called my mom and she never ran into this so I think it may be a pattern boo boo.
