With right sides together, pin the sleeve to the armhole, aligning the centre dot with the shoulder seam. Match notches and seam lines at the underarms. Pull up the gathering stitches to fit. Tack the sleeve in place, easing in the fullness. Stitch between the underarm seams, then work a second line of stitches close to the first for added strength. Trim each side of the seam allowance separately, from the underarm to the notch. Press the seam towards the sleeve.
