Pattern has been professionally tech edited, has a schematic, and includes both charted and written instructions for the lace on the sleeves.

The raglan shaping has been carefully calculated to keep the sleeve widths in correct proportion. No batwings here!

A note about binding off in linen stitch: I tried all manner of different bind offs, and finally decided that ordinary binding off in pattern looked the best. You may find a method that you like better, in which case go for it!
