I made Jalie 2005 (a tee with 3/4 sleeves) and had to add width to the sleeves. It turned out well I think (I need to get pictures so I can review it).

As I'm tracing 2449, I wondered how the altered sleeve would compare. When I lay it on top, it's as big as the biggest size - AA. I'm tracing off size V that corresponds to a 40" bust.

So my question is - do any of you ever cut larger sleeves than the pattern size you are using? I think I read somewhere that you can do that.

I'm going to trace off both and cut both sleeves if I have enough fabric but I thought I'd ask here too.

Yes, I've done that often - it's a quick way to enlarge the sleeve. I usually trace the bigger sleeve and the matching armscye on the bodice.

Thanks Laura - I cut out both sizes. I know the ones corresponding to my size will be too small. I cut them out anyway in case the whole shirt is too small - I'll sew in the proper sleeves and give it to someone.

You answered me before about sleeve issues when I was struggling with narrowing a shoulder. Your comments were dead on (my sleeve would fit even tighter after I narrowed the shoulder) and I'm so thankful when I see you respond anywhere on this board. I take notes and listen up!!
