1940's jacket with circular skirt

I fell in love with this picture when I saw it. It was a great project to work on in my pattern making class. I tried to make the jacket just like the picture, but I had problems making the cuffs so in the end I did not add cuffs to my quarter sleeves. The circular skirt was quite easy to draft and sew. I bought the fabric and buttons at Michael Levine Inc. located in L.A.'s fashion district.
