I made this last year, it was pure pleasure to sew and wonderful to wear. Took a business trip to San Francisco and decided to bring it out. I made the jacket and pants, they both fit very well and have a very couture feel about them. I used a wool with lycra, it's a bit more than medium weight and drapes beautifully. The jacket body is fully interfaced with fusible tricot and here's the good part - it took a round trip to SFO, was worn for an entire day and night, then I put it on the mannequin to photograph. Not bad, eh?
I sent the buckle out to be covered and unfortunately it came apart at the cleaners. I "jimmyed" it together and will have to send it back to be redone. If it looks a bit funky; that's the reason.
The pattern describes it as a semi-fitted, lined jacket, partially interfaced with princess seams, flounce, raglan sleeves with gusset and full length lower sleeves, belt and snap closures. Semi-fitted pants with mock fly closures, pockets, waist facing and slightly flared legs.
I looked all over the internet and didn't find any reviews on the jacket, I wonder why? This is one of my favorite outfits, I feel very elegant when I have it on. It's still in print...
