While I love the idea of refashing this jacket, I'm not sure I like the ruffle on this jacket. Primarily, I think the jacket material is too heavy to go with the ruffle material. I agree with other comments about updating buttons, changing the collar and sleeves. Another idea might be to make the jacket into a cute vest. I love reading your refashion ideas though. Please keep up the good work!

It would be better to "refashion" this jacket into a JACKET DRESS and make the "ruffled" part into a gathered skirt -- just by making it longer! It would be far more flattering to more women by reason of the improved proportion between the top (jacket part) and bottom portions of the final garment. Most women wouldn't like having a frou-frou ruffle around their hip-upper thigh area where so many carry the majority of their weight. And bringing the eye down to that part of the anatomy would cut inches off one's height and ruin any illusion that one had long legs.

I would remove the ruffle and replace with a color closer to the jacket, and maybe smaller print. I would add the same print to the cuffs and collar. I would also change the buttons.

Personally, I prefer a more conservative style. I would try and use a fabric closer in color and texture to the jacket itself. The contrast between the print ruffle and the more subdoued jacket is a bit jarring to my eye.

I would add some color to the collar and cuffs and change the buttons to brighten up the jacket.

To change the look of the ruffled jacket, I would replace the buttons to something brighter or flashy to go with the ruffle. Also, I would roll up the sleeves and make a cuff. The top button could be left undone to change the neckline and a small matching ruffle sown around the collar. BeckyF
