The pattern is easy to follow until you get to the description of how to crochet the edging. I think I did it right and it looks ok but I’m not sure it is correct. The sleeves in the picture look quite long but they aren’t in the pattern but I think the picture is misleading in the pdf download. Haven’t worn it yet.
