I'm going to agree with everyone so far.  More pics please!  The edgings and the lace in the sleeves are great!

I'll post more pictures tomorrow-

I didn't write down the modifications, because I rarely document anything, but here is the basic idea:

Do the pattern as written for the body, until you come to the garter stitch bottom border.   Instead, I made eyelets, just the basic yo k2tog one row, purl the next, etc, until it was long enough.

For the sleeves, I did the puffs like the pattern requested, then instead of the garter stitch finish, I continued in stockinette until it was 2 " before my elbow. (I have short arms).  Then I made the eyelet stitch like for the bottom border, for 5 inches or so.

Then I continued in st st until the sleeves reached my low wrist, decreasing one stitch each side every 6 rows.

The sleeve border is one row eyelet stitch, one row purl, then two rows ruffling, knitting every stitch f and b.

Then I cast off.

Several months later, we got a camera, and my husband took the picture, and here you go!

Thanks for all the great compliments!  I love it when people ask me where I got my knitted things and I can say " I made this!"

Then I continued in st st until the sleeves reached my low wrist, decreasing one stitch each side every 6 rows.

How many times did you decrease 1 st. each side every 6 rows?  Just until they were long enough?  I spent all night trying my calculations to make the boob holder long sleeved.  1 decrease each side every ten rows 10 times was too gradual, and not enough decreasing over all.  So I recalculated and I'm trying 1 dec. each side every 6 rows 6 times, then every 4 rows 6 times.  Anyhow...

And how beautiful is your sweater!?  I'm jealous of how puffy your sleeves turned out.
