Draw in the curved line that forms the sleeve cap. It should curve downward to a maximum deviation of 0,75 cm (5/16 in.) between points "k" and "j" (i.e. at point "u"), then outwards a maximum deviation of 1,5 cm (5/8 in.) between points "j" and "i" (at point "v"), outwards by a maximum deviation of 2 cm. (3/4 in.) between points "i" and "b" (at point "w") and finally, curves inwards and downwards by a maximum deviation of 0,75 cm (5/16 in.) between points "b" and "l" (at point "y"). Note that the curve also passes through point "x", located halfway between points "b" and "e", and follows a straight line from "x" to "b".
