Sleeve help

I've never been a particularly good hand at fitted sleeves, so I need some help. I can't figure out why the chemise a la reine sleeves are fitting so oddly into the shoulders. Here are some pictures.

For one, the chemise feels like it's pulling in the shoulder - you can see it pull where the sleeve meets the top of the back.

And for two, both sleeves are bubbling up, and sticking up above my shoulder at the seam.

What can I do to fix this?

Also, does the lace seem too short to anyone else, or am I crazy?
