It is lined with some of the fabric I bought last week. I didn't make any changes to the pattern - just cut the back in one piece instead of two and I didn't follow the instructions for sewing the yokes to the front and back. Sewing curves doesn't worry me so I just sewed them normally.
I do love to make my patterns and try to make new things, but I also love it it when someone else has done the work and I can just cut and sew without having to think. I do recommend this pattern. I kind of wish it came in my size.
