V Dress and Jacket
I really liked both patterns and plan to reuse them, especially the jacket. I bias bound the jacket seams, used frogs and skipped the pockets on both. I got confused with the instructions for the dress pleat insert and the neck, got there in the end but the inside of my pleat part is a bit scruffy. Very important to make a practice, especially because you can't nicely adjust the length at the hem.

1930 V-Front Dress With Jacket
I have made both the dress and the jacket. I really like the drape of the jacket and the shape of the sleeves. The dress is more complicated - perhaps too complicated. I couldn't make sense of the instructions for inserting the front pleats and ended up improvising; the final result wasn't as neat as I would have liked. I also spent a lot of time on the back buttons before realizing that the dress fastens with side snaps. If I made this dress again, I would skip the back buttons.
