This is a very cute little pattern. I had to go back to instructions several times as I found there were a lot of "duplicate" pieces. Piece #8 was too short to make the bias to fit the whole armhole area. I could have used a couple of more pictures as to where the sewing was to be on the sleeve. Other than that, it turned out beautifully.
