While this is not an accurate historical pattern, it may be worth noting that armscyes were cut very close to the arm in period garments and that gowns were generally one piece - bodice, skirt, and sleeves in one, whether it was an open gown (skirt open in the front to reveal an underskirt) or a round gown (skirt closed all the way around).

I myself had made this dress and had no problem at all, the armholes and sleeves do fit, if you read the directions you are to gather the top have of the upper sleeves (pattern shows were the stitching should go) and then adjust it to fit in the arm hole, it makes a bit of a "puff" at the top
