V8567 Complete

Thanks to everyone for the commentss on my coat. I've worn it several times and received lovely compliments.
V8567 is a finished project finally. It took longer than necessary to finish this one up. This was not a difficult project at all. Here is my review:
Description: Jacket,top, dress, skirt and pants. I made the jacket and skirt. The jacket is lined to the edge, has front & back darts, sleeves with darts and topstitching. The skirt is cut on the bias and has elastic waistline casing and below mid-knee length.
Pattern sizing: 16-18-20-22 I cut size 18.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.
Fabric: Not sure, but I think it's a rayon something. I have several colors in my fabric collection.
Were the instructions easy to follow: Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern: I loved everything about this pattern. I've wanted to make it for a long time.
Would you sew it again, would you recommend it to others: I highly recommend it, but I have many other patterns in my stash I want to try. I probably won't make this one again.
The pictures below show some of the details described in the pattern. This first picture is not a really good one. I know everyone would like to see the finished projects on me. But it's so easy to take a picture on the dress form. I am planning to do better in that respect though in the future.

I am so glad to see that jacket, because I have the pattern, yet unmade. Yours turned out great. Love the color! Now, I have to pull that pattern out and put it in my sight so I will make it.
