This is the second time I made this pattern. The darts went together more smoothly the second time, probably because I’ve had some practise now! For the sleeves a I used an existing pattern I had (Simplicity 5595 view C). I think the elastic puffed sleeves make it kind of fun. If I made the sleeves again, I would go down a size so that they aren’t quite as puffy, so it’s easier to where my sweater over. I couldn’t wait to wear this one to work!
