Default HELP please with armholes!!!

Ok so I am trying to make the pillowcase dresses (I have ruined about 4 pillowcases thus far). I am using the instructions I have found here. I have it all figured out except the measurements for the armholes. The instructions say to cut a "J" figure 1 and 1/2 inch in and 3 inches long. When I follow these measurements, I end up with a tiny armhole. Picutres I have seen of these dresses have a large armhole. Someone please help...I am ready to beat my head against the wall....(I need one of those new smileys for that!)

I use similar measurements for mine. Hmmm, are you taking into consideration that the fabric will be gathered? It does look a bit weird at first. Can you take a picture of what you've done so far?

I use the same measurements. They do look small, but when I put it together and on my grand, it looked ok. I do want to make them alittle bigger, so I just thought about adding an inch to each measurement.
