I'm trying this pattern out for the first time and can't seem to figure out how to place/sew the sleeves into the armscye. I know you posted this review years ago, but if you have any suggestions about where I can look for help - that would be great. Right now I'm stuck

The point of the sleeve matches to the shoulder seam, so the sleeve seam should line up with the shoulder seam. When stitching, you have to pivot when you get to the top of the sleeve.

Wow. Looks great and comfy too. You have given me a fab idea: This might work as a substitute for my karate gi, which is sized as "unisex" ie for men who are 6"2' with narrow hips, which doesn't suit my 5'3" goblet frame... And maybe I could try some hitech breathable stretchy sporty fabric ....! When I get more practice :)

Thanks for the review Nikki, it has some very helpful information. Your jacket looks really nice! We'd love to see photos when you sew it in the brocade!

Terrific--the length and sleeves are very flattering.

I really like this. It's totally professional but still interesting and comfortable to wear (at least it looks that way). Can't wait to see it in your brocade!

Dear Nikky, the way you have commented on this "very easy" pattern is exactly why I have subscribed to this website i.e. to get very helpful information from an advanced sewer prior to just do it myself and risk making a lot of mistakes. Thanks for all your tips and feedback !
