I just got this pattern. Thank you for the comments re:fit. One question, though: do you mean interfacing or interlining when you talk about the cuffs, collar and peplum? I hope you put a photo of your suit because your fabric sounds so cute!

Sorry for confusion. The pattern specifies Fusible Interfacing (nylon fusible knit), but uses it more extensively in the jacket than I did. For the parts I interfaced I used the lightest weight fusible I could find. I also used it to interface the contour waistband I added inside the skirt. I thought it was rather odd to just seam outer fabric and lining at the waist, and was afraid it would stretch in wear - hence my addition of a waistband.
