Chocolate Satin Bomber Coords

I saw this photo of this girl on Pinterest and just fell in love with the oversized look of her bomber jacket. I knew I had to have one, so I decided to take this season’s hottest color, brown, and recreate the jacket. I thought it would be even cuter, if I created an entire coord set with a mini skirt included.


The color is so out of my comfort zone. I’ve never made any type of clothing out of a brown color, except maybe the khaki jacket I made a few weeks ago. But nothing this brown! I swear, the color combo is giving me UPS vibes. LOL!


  • Brown Satin: New York Fashion District

  • Brown/ Mustard Plaid: Joann’s Fabric Store

  • Pattern: McCalls M7100


  • For jacket, I added 5-6 inches to the length of the jacket.

  • I gathered the bottom edge of the jacket and watched a bottom band. I did not place elastic inside the bottom band to create a more structured sleek finish.

  • No elastic was added to the wrist either. Again, this was done this way to create a more structured sleek finish.

  • For the the skirt, I shortened it to 15” in length and lined it with the same flannel.


Did you make a bomber jacket this year? If so, what color was yours? Or did you use a print? I’d love it know!
