Here is the finished product.
Just a couple of tips:
This works with just about any suit jacket.
When you cut the front, leave at least an inch below the bottom button and button hole for the seam.
Make sure to catch the lining when you sew the ruffle down. Sometimes I baste it down by hand with big stitches and remove them later.
The higher the cuts in the sides the more the fabric will poof out. So someone with large hips will look even larger.
Instead of the tail in the back, you could cut another arch or upside down U and do the same thing. It looks just as nice. However, you will have to sew the back on separate and have the fabric longer to accommodate the arch.
