The fashion fabric has been cut out and the outer part is fused with fusible interfacing and sewn together. The lining pattern has to still be modified and cut out. The fabric is a pale buttery yellow poly rayon from that was originally purchased for pants.

The lining is a pale yellow poly lining material from Jennys. All they have is poly lining, but they do have every color there is. I'm still on the hunt for buttons.

The fitting modifications that were made to the pattern ended up being:

Start at the shoulders with a size 14.
Graduate to between a 16 and 18 at the high bust level, size 20 at the waist and add 3 to 4 inches to the hip measurement.

Also lengthened the jacket by 1 1/2 inches and shortened the sleeve by 5/8 inch. Did a full bust adjustment. (Who'd have thought!!) Performed a dowager's hump alteration in the upper back. The FBA and dowager's hump adustment will be the key alterations on all future patterns. It made the back lay down like it's supposed to and the shoulders of the garment sit where they are supposed to sit.

I think the hips are a bit narrow on this pattern because if one compares my hip measurements to the Vogue hip measurements, only two inches should have been needed.
