Opinions Sought

Lately I've been working on a new jacket with inserted strips. Here is the second one, currently "in process". It's not thrilling me. Can anyone give me an idea why and what's wrong? Am I just tired of looking at it? Are the colors just "not my colors"? Is there something wrong with the concept?

Below is an earlier version of a similar jacket made with inserted strips. This one makes me happy and I had fun beading it, too!
Shall I toss the second version, make changes (if so... what?) or carry on and finish it (I'm about 40% done)? Please send me an email or leave a comment.

I think the fabrics are too busy. The jacket you made and love is much calmer to the eye. The one you are working on is much harsher and abrupt. I think you would have to overpaint or dye it to make it work. Just my opinion.

It's very busy and difficult to tell the actual design from the smaller picture. You've used a solid color on the one you have done. If you use solid colors for the back ground, it might be more to your liking.
