Yes, I agree - it looks like the size knitted for this sweater is too large for the model but it has been pulled to the back to make it more fitting for her  than what it really is.    The back view is way looser than the front, and as you spotted, the sleeves have been pinned to make them slimmer.    Use the schematic and gauge numbers to make the sweater more fitting for your body measurements - it looks like the side lace panels would be easily adjusted by knitting less there.   I love this too and plan to knit it.

Ugh, just ordered the magazine for this pattern. Whats with the weird pinched sleeves in the back view? should I plan on making the sleeves narrower? looks like they were pinned for the photo. I don't care for baggy sleeves!
