Tulip sleeves too tight

    I made this for my daughter and the fit was perfect, but the sleeves are very tight. Has anyone else had any trouble with the sleeves? I’ve never had an issue with an O+S pattern, so I’m assuming it’s me.

    I think I’ve only made the tulip sleeve once in all my Fairy Tale iterations, but no, no problems…
    Did the sleeve sew into the armhole ok? Obviously, the amount of overlap would affect the tightness when worn but would also change how the sleeve attached.
    From memory, after you’ve overlapped there’s still a bit of gathering of the sleeve head. If you overlap too much and it didn’t need gathering then it could certainly end up too tight.
