The seamwork Quince day robe looks pretty close to me.

@Pearl, Vogue 1610 would be a good start for a Kantha jacket, and Sandra Bentzina’s instructions are usually excellent.
Vogue 1610

Vogue 9334 would also work well and be easy.

There's the Grainline Tamarack Jacket  which is designed for quilted fabric. Worth a look anyway. Says it's for Advanced Beginners.

Thanks, @Manuela .  I’ll check them out.

I do like that, @Vezelay , but I’m definitely not an advanced beginner.

@Pearl the problem with the Grainline pattern would be the set-in sleeve, this is the 'advanced' part of it  :)

@Pearl I'm not suggesting that you use this pattern but I made the robe in McCalls 2476 last year as my first garment in nearly 40 years. It's the same shape roughly as those jackets and if you take your time and mark everything clearly you could do it no problem. I even used French seams and added a hanging loop!!!  :o

I have no vision so can't see the first Vogue one as a jacket  :|
Love the second Vogue one @Manuela  and were I able to sew on more than the odd ( very odd sometimes ) button I'd give it a try ( although I thought Vogue was a blast from the way-past )
So...... make one for me pleeeeaaase @Pearl when you make one for yourself  ;) <3

In one of my Burda magazines, there is a japanese influenced jacket which I've tried to find on their site, but can't.  Will dig the magazine out later and have a look at it but in the meantime, I've found the following patterns which are of a similar shape, they might need a little changing but in essence are similar.    I think I would quilt each piece of fabric first, ie a square of fabric larger than the said pattern piece, and then cut the pattern piece out of that.

What about this or this or this or this
A measly 2.5m of stash used so far!

Thank you all so much for your help.  Plenty of food for thought. 

I was planning to buy a kantha quilt to use, @Missie , but if I quilted it myself, I could choose the fabric myself.  In fact, I have some in my stash which might be just the job. 

I've found this, @Lowena , so you'll be able to make one too.   ;)

I have a book on making Japanese garments.  And this looks a bit like one of the jackets in there.  Simple shaping.  If you need any info, just pm me.

Simplicity 3506, containing top/skirt/dress/trousers and jacket might be a starting point for such a jacket. I've got the size 10-18 option from which I've made the top only. If it'd be suitable you can have it for the price of the postage.
