I'm making Jalie 2910 (the redo of the mock wrap). I can't figure out how that sleeve lines up.

Any suggestions?
Thanks!!

I'm not sure what you mean about how the sleeve lines up. Can you be more explicit?

The sleeve is identical (PDF of pattern pieces) on the front and back, so I can see where that might add to the confusion. Did you follow the sewing directions with blind faith, or are you having problems wrapping your head around what they want you to do? There is a lot going on in the sleeve step. From just looking at the directions, it looks like you are setting the sleeve in flat while catching the opposite front into the side seam.

Anyone else read the directions and get the same idea out of them?

It would be easier if I had that pattern, but alas, with my figure I've hesitated to purchase it, especially since I've found the bicep in all their patterns that I've tried to be sausage casing tight.
