I have done my sloper and Karen has checked over it for me. She said to go onto making a simple garment. This is what I have done. I am happy with the fit generally but the sleeve width is tighter than I would like. The sloper sleeve was tight but this is what I was told to expect.

I have gone into the defaults for the cuff measurements and increased this by 1.5 inches. Is this what is needed to generally make the sleeve wider or should I increase the bicep measurement?

Thank you

You want to set the sleeve hem circumference.

The cuff is a different setting.

This is a design setting that you can set your default, but will also want to think about for the design you are doing.

Do not change the bicep measurements.

If you are doing a garment with a cuff, you will want to set the cuff cirfumference.  You will then need to select a sleeve hem style if you are doing a sleeve that should have pleats or gathers at the hem.

The tapered sleeve defaults to the cuff circumference.
