I have probably made 5 or 6 of this pattern and have yet to have a problem with the sleeves..I don't work out, but have "plow pulling"upper arms

Lori, this is very pretty. I want some of that fabric! I like the cowl the way you made it, as I have found (just as Mini said), that the cowl is too high for me in fabrics with body. I have yet to make a slinky version, but that one may be okay in the wider cowl, since it would "slink" down around the neck.

I like the modified cowl. The original version can get too bulky for some sweater knits. The proportion of this top looks good on you. To get more room in the bicep area, maybe you could try tracing the armhole and upper sleeve from the next size up, then blend the lower sleeve into the Small for your forearm and wrist. I lift weights too, and pattern designers don't seem to take muscle mass into account when they design women's clothing:).

Lori - this is georgous! No one would ever guess it was home-sewn. This is one of my favorite patterns - I made one in red Slinky last winter that I just love to wear.
