This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s to 1920. This is a postage stamp around the world quilt pattern made with scraps from the makers sewing box. If you look at the center red and white polka dot square in the back of the jacket, that square represents the center of the world and the corresponding quilt blocks were built around that epicenter. This piece is hand quilted and hand pieced. If you look close you will see the variation in each beautiful stitch. We added denim sleeves and a collar to this piece to avoid the jacket feeling to thick or bulky. This is a medium weight, medium thickness quilt with loft (puffiness). Perhaps our favorite feature of this gorgeous quilt is the contrasting fabric on the inside of the jacket which we have tried our best to show you in photos when possible. We added braided leather buttons as closures down the front of this jacket. Please note if you are afraid of spiders or hate spiders do not buy this jacket as it contains a children's book page with a gnarly spider on the inside hang tag of this jacket. There is some slight discoloration to some of the lavender squares. But nothing that we consider predominant or distracting from the overall design. We have tried to show photos of this in the listing.
Please reference measurements before purchasing for a specific fit.
This jacket features two generous pockets.
This piece is lightweight but of medium thickness. It has loft to it but it is not heavy at all.

Please note that all of our jackets are made from antique quilts and the fabric reflects this. Our fabrics are sometimes older than 100 years old and are perfectly worn. We believe this is what makes them special and is part of their charm. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
