This is an antique, American quilt made circa 1900-1929. This is the traditional log cabin quilt pattern. This piece is a great fabric study and is loaded with light and dark fabric from its era. The back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) is a black and charcoal calico and looks amazing contrasted against the business side of the quilt. This piece is very soft, it is thin, and it is lightweight. It has a beautiful drape. There are a couple patches throughout the jacket that will be completely unnoticeable except from the inside of the jacket. 

 

  • This is a very lightweight quilt and also thin. It hugs the body beautifully. It also moves and drapes exceptionally well.

  • This jacket features side slits 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.

  • 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.

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.
