Ok, the front sleeve now. Begin by extending the shoulder-line the same way you did on the back-piece. You will find that it makes the sleeve-opening really short. It should be shorter than the original sleeve-opening, but I raised the shoulder to make the sleeve opening a little longer. It also meant I’d get more drape and a lower neckline, which I wanted.
I raised it about 1,5cm. Draft a new sleeve-opening, again use the french curve if you find it hard to draw free-hand. I measured the old one to make sure the new one was a bit but not too much shorter.
Make sure to make 90 degree-angles in both ends of the shoulder-seam.
