I am using flannelette and a very thin waterproof stretchy fabric to line a thicker wool sweater.  I followed sweater pattern when cutting the lining but when I tried the lining on, the armholes seem to pull at the bottom and make the back feel too tight.  I am thinking about adding some more stretchy fabric to the bottom and back of armhole.  Another thought I had was to raise the armpit further up and therefore sew the side seams further up towards the armhole.  Any suggestions on how to fix this or how to cut the insert?  Thanks!

Add an inch of width to the center back and box pleat the excess into the neckline. I think that's how suit jackets are lined.
