I hope to make up several of CJ's patterns, and this review has been very helpful

nice skirt, nice jacket. Both look great on you.

Linda L, I am 5'2" and would not hesitate to make this style (I do have this pattern ready to make up). The secret is in using the proper fabric--it really needs to be drapey. I find all of CJ's skirt patterns to be extremely flattering on a short person.

Loved the mixed fabric. Great idea. Like the skirt but being 5'3" it would be rather overwhelming on me. Looks great on you and like your jacket with it.

Absolutely beautiful. This is a wonderful tailored outfit with a kick! I have made this pattern's top, but haven't yet done the skirt. Thanks for the inspiration.

Nice! Thanks for pushing me in the direction of making this. I don't have the pattern yet, but given the raves plus the fact that it is very similar to a skirt I saw in a magazine and liked ... I think there's no question. Long and slenderizing? I'M SOLD! Great job!

Great skirt, very pretty! You look very "put together" and stylish!

Great skirt, I like the mixed textures. It makes it even better with that geometric sort of Missoni zigzag on the top.

Lovely skirt. I like the jacket too -- did you make it also?
