I found a yard and a half of this beautiful designer fabric that has pleats and a psychedelic pattern. It is a cotton with great breathability for the hot summer months without sacrificing any style.

Bomber jackets have been on my mind since I have delved into the world of outerwear. Last year I took a trip to Los Angeles and purchased several cuts of beautiful designer fabrics. It isn't until now that I have felt comfortable cutting into them. This beautiful sateen fabric is one of my purchases from that trip, it has a very slight amount of stretch, subtle sheen, and a beautiful print that reminds me of a colorful birch tree.
I purchased this fabric intending to make a skinny pant from it, if they had more than the yard I purchased I would have loved to make a skinny suit. But since I have been curious about making fashion forward bombers I decided to switch plans. I love how it came out! I added navy ribbing and a sport zipper to complete the look. I gave the jacket some edge in the sleeves by doing a gathered shoulder and dramatic cuffs at the hem.
I was considering selling this one but decided it has a permanent place in my personal closet ;). I am wearing it with Topshop Joni Jeans and maroon ankle boots from Zara.
