Debbie Bliss Molly - right and left fronts are not round and sleeves too short

Debbie Bliss - Molly Bolero
Can anyone help me - I’ve knitted the entire one piece but looking at it, to start the edging - it looks all wrong, especially the left and right front - it’s not curved at all and I can see that when I pick up stitches the edging will bunch up - are there corrections for this pattern - why did the cast off rows not create rounded front sections? Also the sleeves seem really short…

Thanks- i want to finish this and not abandon the pattern!

p.s. if you have an image of the one piece (before the edging) that would be great!

i did a google search and there are several blogs talking about the project. This one and the replies may help…http://theraineysisters.com/?m=200704
