What does sleeve seam mean?

Pattern says Continue straight until sleeve seam measures 6 in.

I can't see anything that looks like a seam, only the 2 sides of the sleeve as I've knitted them so far.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Anne,

Sleeve seam can be measure from an underarm to the end of the cuff.

In this case, you can just measure one of the sides of the sleeve where it forms a straight line. These 2 sides will be seamed together later.

thanks for the question!
