Cropped Leather Jacket

So I came across this leather jacket in our building's 'giveaway' area.
I really like the cutouts, the simplicity of the design (no lining), and the color. However, it was boxy.
I wanted a more modern look and immediately knew I would crop it.
Leftovers! I'll save that for a later project :). The new cropped length was great, but now I needed to tackle the boxiness of it all. I did so by adding darts in the back. And here they are from the outside.
 Here's the final result.
I love how simple the changes were and what an impact they had! Well, what do you think? An improvement or would you have left it? I can't wait to get to work with the leftovers from this one...I'm thinking a clutch/purse, iPhone case...I'll combine the two! If you want to see more of this project and my process, you can find it here. Happy Monday!

Peace, 
Andrea

Thanks ladies :) It's actually where I live, Renata :) Sorry, shoulda specified that...I live in an apartment building and yes, we are lucky to have this set up where unwanted items have a place to be left and perused. I've found several useful things there!
