Ruffle-front Jacket

I just finished up this jacket as a gift for my mom’s birthday. It’s basically a drawstring capelet with raglan sleeves—not terribly difficult to make. Because it’s adjustable and not very fitted, it works well as a gift—you don’t have to worry so much about getting the size exactly right. The one problem I foresee is that it could make the wearer fidgety—constantly ruching and unruching the ruffles.

I picked up this fabric at a thrift store in Niles, Michigan. It’s medium-weight and quite soft, but I’m not actually sure what type of fabric it is. The black-and-white twill ribbon is from Paper Source.
