Here are my suggested changes to this design:
And here is a picture of my actual knitting progress.
In this picture you may see better the two different pattern which are used to form this design. On the right side you see plain stockinette stitch. On the left side you see the dropped stitch pattern in the center part of the back and the front. Back and front are knitted using these two patterns. To work this two patterns at the same time, the garment is knitted using short rows.
