Up Cycled Jacket

I have recently become interested in up cycling I managed to acquire a gents suit jacket after much thought I unpicked and removed the sleeves then re cut and reshaped the main body of the jacket. I then reassembled it and embellished it with a patterned skirt that I cut on the bias to create the frills and ruffles, I then added D rings into the back panel and threaded the belt from the skirt to draw in the jacket to give the nipped in look, bias was added to the front lapel to give balance and finished with two decorative buttons.
