This is a great pattern! I used vintage wool and lined it with some green acetate that was lying around my mom’s house. The pattern went together beautifully, with no problems. I hemmed it with a piece of scrap black silk, because the wool is too thick to turn up. It would have ruined the beautiful pleats.
