Date: July 21, 2014 at 2:39:19 PM PDT
Thanks, Lisa. I found out from someone else that I could add a little bit more (one-quarter inch) to the fabric and have it work. The sleeves are the same fabric as the rest of the garment. I had done a previous version of the same pattern without sleeves, so I am familiar with the pattern.
I will try to post a photo soon.

My answer would be--you can put sleeves on ANYTHING, even if the fabrics
are different. The main Thing is to draw/design the sleeve, and do at
least one mock up. If you have somewhat less stretch than required, make
the pattern pieces a little bigger, then with the mock-up try it on and
trim it down a small amount at a time. If you have enough fabric to
spare, make a trial sleeve and set it in, to see how the stretch behaves.
I firmly believe that you can make any pattern iwth any fabric, if you
make a mock up and know how the fabric behaves. If you get frustrated
making mock-ups, remember that the final one will be your "pattern" when
you are done, and the next version will be much easier!
