I really need to take it in a bit, in the second photo I'm holding the back in about 3" in the waist area and I think it makes enough difference to rip the zipper out and take it up a bit in the back seam. The fabric is a cotton with some lycra, so I think that will work out fine. The jacket...I could really do without, I do like it better open than closed though.
Actually I could take it or leave it. It really needs to be a couple inched longer (in the front). I might make one in another style just because it's just a good summer staple.
Update... I made the alteration and it looks much better. SO, now it's done! Thanks for your suggestions and comments, you all are great!!
