Leopard Love

This beautiful leopard jacket was prepared  December 11, 2015 as a Christmas gift for my mom. It is McCall's pattern 6844 view D. I cut an XL but the sizes seem to run bigger so it fits like a 2X. I had a tough time with the collar but I eventually made it work. My mom is 6 feet tall so this pattern worked in her favor with the longer peplum. I also extended the sleeve length for added wrist coverage. The fabric is a ponte knit that I purchased from Hancock Fabrics. It's very beautiful and has a nice weight to it. There are not many pieces to this jacket so it can be put together in a few hours. It can easily be worn during the fall and winter seasons. I was so proud to be able to add in my label as well. 
How would you dress this jacket up?
