Refashion: Hot pink self-stitched jacket makeover

Okay, this is not a red garment. But hot pink has a lot of red pigment in it, right? Anyway, I made this Hot pink cotton sweatshirt jacket a few months back. Hubby said it was a bit stumpy on me and I didn't wear it much. It's such a shame because I like the material and the colour. So I thought I could refashion it a little to make it more wearable.

I figured that the bulky sleeves probably make the jacket very stumpy so I cut about 7cm off the sleeves, hemed them, created inverted box pleats and then added a black button to it. I think it looks a bit more modern and wearable now:
