This is a fabulous pattern! Very easy to sew for intermediate level. you need to be comfortable with button holes and be willing to try a pleated back end (literally)
I made the lining of the jacket out of the same material as the skirt.

I found that this pattern of course runs large so go a size smaller than what your measurements are and then you will need to take in the waist if yours runs a normal size.  I should have taken in mine but i didnt' know any better at the time. I actually ended up making two jackets and one is too large. I may sell it.

Over all the jacket only takes about 4 hours to sew lining and all and the skirt about 30 -45 minutes 
Also the skirt top half can double as a wonderful pencil skirt  I'm making one right now and i'm going to add some fun fringe at the bottom. Smiley

Any questions let me know!
