S2263 is a Misses/Miss Petite jacket, top & two styles of skirts.  I made the jacket from this pattern.

Pattern Description:  Jacket with shoulder epaulets, sleeve tabs, back tabs, all with buttons.  The pockets are pleated with bands.  Pattern does not suggest lining the jacket, but I did.  (I line everything)  The collar is all one piece.  It has a simulated notch collar, but there is no seam.  
Fabric: I'm not sure, but it came from Joann's.
Did it look like the pattern pictured:  Yes
What did you like or dislike?  I liked the pattern and it came together smoothly.  Except the collar ripples a bit (maybe not the right word to describe it) but it could be caused by the type of fabric.  It did not appear like that on both sides though.
Would you sew it again?  Probably not the jacket.  Maybe some of the other pieces from the pattern.
Would you recommend it?  Yes if you like lots of tab & shoulder epaulet details.
Conclusion:   If you want quick & easy, this is not it.  But it is easy sewing where there are lots of details to take care of before actually sewing the body of the jacket.

A woman after my own heart! I LOVE this pink suit. You are on it getting these gorgeous garments stitched up. I'd been wanting a white suit and this pink one brought it back to my rememberance. Love the epaulette and pocket detail. A great addition to your wardrobe!
