The jacket has the most wonderful pockets, which join into the front dart. The skirt is a no-nonsense eight gore number. A tied belt softens the lines of the whole thing just a bit.
Now, here's where the adventure part comes in: i'm not positive of the size of this pattern. It's stamped on the top right corner, but it's not a complete impression. I think it's a Size 14, which would in this case mean a 32" bust, but it's also possible that it's a Size 16, which would be a 34" bust. But isn't a jacket this slick worth a muslin to get the fit right? I thought so.

(For those who want more details on the pattern, it's pre-cut and complete, instructions are in good shape and the envelope is quite nice; the skirt pieces appear to be unused, but the jacket front and back show wear at notches and perforations, and on the jacket front there's a small tear at the inside of the curve of the pocket, size uncertain but probably a 32" or 34" bust measurement.)
