It looks like a great tutorial for a modern straight sleeve. It will get you the basics. There are some additional things you should keep in mind, that period sleeves will generally have a lower sleeve cap, with a wider sleeve width.
I just taught a class called Overcoming the Sleevils. It may be helpful along with the above tutorial. The pattern draft I offered on the last two pages is more Elizabethan era (and is not my draft), but the basic sleeve info is appropriate for any sleeve pattern. I hope it will be helpful for folks having problems with sleeves, especially in understanding what parts of a sleeve should be adjusted and where.
The article is a pdf and can be found linked at the top of this page.
If anyone has suggestions to improve the handout, please contact me off list. I want to improve it for future classes. Thanks.
