To make up:
With right sides together, join shoulder seams at top of front and back for about 1/8th inch/0.25 cm on each side. Fold sleeves in half lengthwise to find mid point. Pin this mid point to shoulder seam (making sure right sides are together)
Sew sleeves in place, taking care to match them up so they will be level when the side seam is joined. Join side and sleeve seams turn right side out and press seams gently with a warm iron and damp cloth if required.
