I wasn't impressed by the pattern picture and thought the lapel was large, but your outfit looks really nice.

Sue it's such a great look. I was just wondering where you'd actually wear the outfit. I'm glad to hear that the jacket will get worn---with jeans. The dress would make a great jumper over a blouse.

Your outfit is beautiful. I really like your method for lining the dress & putting in the zipper.

Really, really nice job on this project. And thank you so much for the heads up and photo of how low the back of the dress is. It looked low in the line drawing, but so much better to see it made up. Now I'll know to raise the back. Beautiful work!

Nice outfit - love the color - agree with Marji - would never have given this pattern a second glance but yours looks so classy may add it to the stash

Great looking ensemble. I think yours looks way better than the pattern illustration.
