The pattern is well designed and I like the instructions. The sleeve seam is a bit odd; you wrap the seam allowances over each other rather than stitching right sides together and pressing open. Bulk is reduced and the seam is hidden under the arm, so I'm fine with that. The sleeve is short so if you don't like the sewing technique, you would need to redesign the sleeve pattern and make it longer to avoid the technique.

As a side note, I had my makeup done while wearing the red dress. Every year or two I go to Sofia at the Nordstrom Lancome counter at Woodfield and have an update on products and application techniques. A "master makeup artist" was visiting the store and placed trendy teal products on my eyes.
