How to tell if a Sleeve will fit into an Armhole – Part 2

There are other important measurements to consider when fitting a sleeve to an armscye (armhole).

1. Is the sleeve wide enough?  The sleeve needs to be large enough to fit around the biceps and triceps muscles.

2. Is the sleeve curve high enough?  If the sleeve curve is shorter than the armscye, then the sleeve will protrude at an awkward angle and the sleeve will pull on the garment.
