This jacket's left sleeve is not fitting properly at the shoulder. I have re-inserted this sleeve more than once but have not got the thing right yet. I have never made a jacket before so this is a problem for me. Any ideas on how I can get this right?? Winter is almost over and still its not complete. help...
no suggestions at the moment but I did observe that your right shoulder looks low so your shoulders are different from each other. This is typical as we mature. I noticed this because I also have one low shoulder and wondered why things fit the way they did. I will slightly pad my lower shoulder.

My guess is that this result has more to do with the pattern and less to do with your sewing or shoulders. Any chance you could take a picture of the sleeve pattern piece? Pattern brand and number would also help.
