I am an inexperienced sewer- I have my own machine (lower end brother model), but I"ve only made seven or so things... mostly costumes. My friend who used to work in a costume shop likes to laugh at me because I like to try things way outside of my skill level.

Ease stiches around top of sleeve... okay... then pin in place and try using some form of arcane wizardry to distribute the fabric around. I used a long straight machine stich for my ease. The sleeves look dumb. uneven and poofy. I've tried it three different times. Is there an easier way that this? Is this just a dumb pattern? help.
