You did a beautiful job! Don't know if this will be of any help, but for well priced, vintage patterns you could try etsy online. The site has multitudes of wonderful, sewing related items. As for lining, I don't think many would disagree that Bemburg lining is superb. Not sure of what's available where you live, but you should be able to get it at any reputable online fabric site. Good luck.

Very nice. I love peplum jackets too, they are so flattering and this one looks wonderful on you. Very, very chic.

I like the silhouette of this jacket with the slim skirt. Nice choice!

Beautiful suit and I agree with Twisted Angel - I wouldn't have recognized that wonderful suit from the pattern envelope!

Your version looks much better than the pattern photo ;-)

Your jacket is wonderful. The fit is fantastic, and the workmanship looks good. The style really suits you. (Certainly, I was distracted from liking this pattern by the collar.)

Wow, you look so sharp in that jacket. Your version should be on the envelope-they would sell more of this pattern!

That is really sharp. I don't care for the envelope, but your version is very chic. Try rayon Bemberg lining, I love the stuff.

I've got that pattern but haven't used it yet. I've got to now after seeing how amazing yours looks!
