I finally got the sleeves to fit and moved on to the french lace I purchased when I first started.  I had to widen the straps about 1/2, lower the sleeve cap and widen the sleeve the same amount.  Normally I would also lengthen the sleeve but since I am using the finish edge of the lace I did not worry about the length.   It was quite scary to cut $160 a yard fabric but I did it.  The sleeves went in so much easier with the quality fabric than the fabric the  mock up.  I also added the cording at the neck.  Once I get the lining attached in the top I will be ready for the skirt.
