I'm glad to see how your's turned out! I'm about to start working on this exact same pattern and I TOTALLY agree with you about the lace insert (SUPER TACKY). But I am wondering how tall you are? I agree with you that sleeves do look a bit un-streamlined on your fabulous version, but the sleeves look okay on the model. I'm 5' 9" so I think that I might be able to pull those sleeves off.
