I used Butterick 3648 for Husband’s jacket and pants and Butterick 6630 (dress A) for my dress. Neither pattern was an “easy” one, but they both were reasonable in their difficulty. The directions were clear, and the sizing came out the way I expected (I lengthened the torso pieces and leg pieces for Husband since he’s tall and otherwise followed the patterns exactly.). Husband made his top hat out of cardboard and covered it with leftover fabric from his pants.
dress: embroidered polyester (looks like raw silk) and lace I had on hand
jacket: polyester suiting (and leftover silk scraps for lining)
pants: polyester suiting
various weights of interfacing
