Yes, I found this suit and New Look in general to be more true to size, ie. the upper body is smaller than with the other major pattern companies.

Alana, that is a *very* nice suit :) I've been looking at the pattern details on the Simplicity website and it appears from the finished garment measurements that it's reasonably true to size and that selecting your size based on body measurements would work. Is this the case? (I've had a lot of bad experiences with patterns that run big).

Thanks everyone. A collarless jacket is a good choice if you are a little nervous about tackling jackets, and a good fabric, something wool or silk with some texture, will go a long way toward getting a good result.

Alana, your suit is just beautiful and I'm really impressed with the fit you got! You just did a fabulous job! I had to smile at the part where you say you stared at the tissue for a week before you got up the nerve to cut it out.

Beautiful Job! The tweed really shows well and gives it some depth. Like Deepika, I am also soon to tackle jackets. Thanks for your thorough review.

Alana! The suit is so professional. I can't believe it was sewn at home. A very helpful review also. So far I havent tackled jackets but reading your review and looking at your photos, I am really inspired. Thanks!

That fabric really plays up the suit's simple, beautiful lines. Great job, and I can see why you'll make it again and again.
