Errata: There is a number missing in the Shoulder Shaping on back. It should read like following…

Shape Shoulders and Neck: Next row (WS): P33 (36, 39, 40, 43, 46, 48, 48), BO19 (19, 19, 23, 23, 23, 25, 29), p to end.

Clarification: when you shape shoulders on the front same as the back you will only do the shoulder shaping and not the neck shaping. When the instructions read to do shaping on the neck edge ignore it just purl or knit across depending which side you are working. Also, follow instructions for left shoulder back for right shoulder front and vice versa.
My tech editor and I thought this was clear but we have had some questions about it. So I hope this helps :-)

Yarn Change Notice: if you change the yarn be sure it is not too heavy as one of my students made this tunic out of a wool bamboo in a size large and it grew to a size 3x. Getting gauge is critical!!!
