It's really an adorable little jacket, David! Very stylish, very wearable for any occasion IMO! The pattern stitch is nice for a design that's simple lines.

The challenge will arrive when you're working the decreases along the armhole edges. Patterns usually ask us to "maintain pattern stitch" as best you can as stitches disappear.

Unless there is no armhole shaping, and the sides go straight up....you'll have armhole shaping "in pattern" facing you. In studying the photo, there is something unusual going on where the sleeves join to the upper body! It's interesting looking!
