This is an american, Antique quilt made circa the 1890s-1920s. It is the Carmen's Block quilt pattern. This piece has been beautifully hand-quilted and hand-sewn, which is a labor of love and a lost art. Each square is 2"x2." We have preserved the original zig-zag border of the quilt and have showcased it on the hem and cuffs of the jacket. This is an exceptionally rare detail. It should not go without notice that the quilt was backed in a beautiful blue striped fabric, which will make this jacket look beautiful if worn inside out or when cuffed. In Lady Lancaster terms, this is a 10/10 as it checks all of our boxes. 

  • In our opinion, the quilt is very soft with a great drape. It is in excellent condition for its age. The quilt is a summerweight quilt. it was not made for warmth but only for aesthetics. Thus, there is little to no batting. 

  • This jacket features side vents for generous movement and a beautiful drape.

  • This jacket has two clear snaps at the tips of the collar that secure the lapel if desired.

  • The Helen jacket is completely reversible due to its french seams.

  • This jacket has two pockets.

  • Fold the architectural collar down to create a lapel if desired.

  • The Helen is a mid-length jacket that falls right above the knee.
  • The Helen Jacket has a generous fit and is not meant to have a tailored look.

  • One Size Fits Most

  • Measurements

    36” back of the neck to the bottom of the hem

    23” shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve

    36” laying flat, armpit to armpit

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.
