the dress

the jacket

I'm 52 and size 16 (5'6")

I would say not really because the dress has a pattern and so does the jacket.

No they don't. The patterns clash.

No I don't think they do.

The dress is quite busy and so is the jacket. Busy dress = plain jacket and vice versa.

I was thinking the same, actually!

The annoying thing is I could make a nice simple black jacket myself- if I didn't have a family member lodging in my sewing room!

Yes, I'm afraid I would agree, too many patterns fighting one another. One of the items needs to be a bit simpler.
