On the hunt: Boho 'Draped' Jacket

 Whilst looking at 'Bohemian' inspiration a key part of the look was the 'draped' jacket  (or Kimono). So, now I'm either on the hunt for that perfect jacket or the perfect fabric to make my own.

If I decide to make one myself, I'm thinking of using either: a chiffon (or other polyester type fabric) or black satin which, I would then add gold oriental detail onto by applique or fabric paint. The pattern will be fairly easy to make myself, because the jacket does not require any sort of shape or tailoring.

 My inspiration for the black satin one definitely came from Taylor Swift's outfit transformation at the Brit Awards. I love the gold detail and could imagine it working really well on a jacket. This also fits in with the oriental idea which is being carried on into the summer trends.
