This really looks cute in your photos. I hope you got used to it and have worn it many times since you made it.

To fix the problem with the sleeve cap you want to first measure your sleeve cap length. Measure around your arm under the arms-eye (Your upper arm circumferance) and then from the bottom of that measurement take a measurement from the shoulder bone to the bottom of the first measurement. Mine is 6". On the pattern measure from the seam allowance at the top of the sleeve cap to the bottom of the arms eye. If the measurement is to short add the difference to the top of the sleeve and then taper in to the curves of the sleeve. You could probably google this.

Thanks so much for this information. I appreciate your taking the time to post.

I made this jacket with rayon and the biggest issue was the sleeves. They twisted badly. Had extra fabric so cut a slimmer sleeve with a higher cap from a tunic I knew fit well. Sadly, not much improvement. Removed the sleeves, finished the armholes with binding and created a vest. So, at least I saved my fabric. For me, the armholes are wide and deep and the back is narrow. I should have double checked ALL of the measurements. Don't know if I'll try another one or not.

Great comments. I just made this jacket from a cotton batik, and had the exact issues - the sleeve twists, and I hate that shoulder seam. I thought it was just me, or that I had picked the wrong fabric. Thank you for the tips on finishing.

Your jacket is quite lovely, despite the problems you ran into. It looks like you are at least getting some use from it! Thanks for a thoughtful review.

Sleeve cap depth: Possibly take a horizontal slit in the pattern, (perpendicular to the sleeve length) and spread a bit near the top of the sleeve but deeper than the seam allowance?
