Right vs. left

When a pattern refers to the left sleeve, does that mean the sleeve that would be on your left arm when wearing the finished garment or the sleeve that’s on the left as you’re facing the front of the garment? I’m probably overthinking this. Thanks in advance!

I’ve only ever see it in patterns as if you were wearing it. So if it says ‘left front’ it is the side that would be on the left side of your body. Same with the sleeves.

Thank you!
