The fronts are too closed, I think. Â It makes your upper body look bigger and bulkier. Â I think the colour is great for summer, though.
Yes, I think that is exactly right. The taper into the vertical should begin at least and inch, or maybe two, more into the hem of the jacket. Without that taper at the bottome, it has the apperance of a wrapped pole. Further, although I'm much smaller, I'm particularly conscious of the gap at the vent. You seem to have the gap. Get the tailor to let the side and back seams out enough to allow the rear vent to hang straight. That may also help the skirt problem. But looking at the lines of it, I believe it will need to be cut a bit to get it where I would want it. Not to worry. The best thing about buying these thing half way cheap is that you can afford to worry a tailor to death and still be in it for a very good cost. Just be sure you like the fabric before you begin the project of making it fit exactly as you want.
