Linen Ruffled Jacket

My daughter-in-law Janet pinned a similar ruffled jacket on her board. There was not a pattern avaliable but I found this jacket pattern on peak-a-boo. I made a few changes to the pattern so it would have a curved front. I matched one of my Japanese fabrics for the linning. I have never made ruffles before and learned that cutting the ruffle on the bias would prevent the fabric from fraying! I did not have any suitable buttons and didn’t want to do covered buttons. After looking around pinterest I decided to make rosettes for the first time. After trial and error I managed to make two that looked similar! I think they look good with the ruffle. I used the sew-on variety of snaps. This pattern is size 12 months so it will be a little big for Juni at the moment!
