First pin each sleeve only to the underarm curve of the armhole, right sides facing, matching seam mark on under sleeve to seam mark on side piece and matching seam marks 13 on upper sleeve and front (17). Then pin the shoulder mark on the sleeve cap to the shoulder seam. Now ease the fabric of the sleeve cap, along the bobbin threads of the machine basting, until the sleeve matches the armhole. Pin the sleeve cap in place, distributing the eased fullness evenly. Work from the sleeve side to baste and stitch the sleeve in place (18). Turn allowances toward sleeve.
