I recently participated in a winter holiday swap, and this is what I sent one of my partners.
My first order of business was to remove the skirt and add a waistband, as I didn't like how high it was originally. As I couldn't find more scraps of the fabric, I took some white cloth and embroidered a design to coordinate with the print. Here's a detail:
I also added tuck to the bodice so it fit closer, and took out a panel of the skirt as the fullness was a bit hard to control.
This partner specifically asked for a coat. Once again, I decided to rehome a seldom used garment.
