A cloak for evening

This was called a gypsy cloak. Not sure why but that was what they called it. Charlotte's gypsy cloak is made of a medium weight tan satiny fabric. It's lined with a lighter tan colored lining. The cloak is trimmed with a white tasseled fringe, as is the muff and hat.
The cloak has a small collar, and is closed at the neck with a hidden hook and eye.
 The hat is pure confection, made of tan straw, and trimmed with the tassel fringe and loads of silk ribbon loops. It looks like a pretty little package.

The cloak could be made longer, and out of   

something heavier to wear on colder evenings.
Or out of black velvet with jet bead fringe trim.
