I'm sure there's a way to do this more neatly and i tried to put the inches in, but my math wasn't adding up. Please tell her, that the issues aren't that bad. Once the errata gets integrated into the pattern, it's really easy to follow.
Something else that i just thought of--when drawing the diagram, make the sewn seam edges bold.
starting number of stitches is not divisble by 4
-- not sure if this is important, but a knit and purl would end up at the seam if it was

make sure it is clear that each section should end in row 4 of waffle pattern
increase for shoulder section:
add to work even in pattern "until sleeve measures" and end in row 4 of waffle pattern--make sure to add at any point of "knit so many inches" that it is clear to where to measure from. ie work 3 more inches or sleeve will measure blah blah.
"work 35 sts, place marker"--why do you need a marker when you're going to bind off. It will fall off.

for the back section (the held stitches) make sure it ends on a row 4

new ball of yarn section-- end it in row 4 -- place held stitches on needles, knit across, cast on the extra stitches and knit across new section

when picking up stitches for the body, make a suggestion where to start.
This is important for the section where you say knit the remaining stitches instead of increasing or decreasing and the puckers won't be evenly distributed and this should probably be in the back? I tried starting mine at an underarm so that the weird spot where the row changes would be hidden, but i don't think this is where you started.
You might suggest starting the collar at the base of the V and then pick up and extra one at the corner of the neck to help turn the corner.

The only other thing that would make this super dooper cool is if the sleeves could be knitted in the round and eliminating the under arm seaming--that would only leave the side seam for an inch
