The Helen is a mid-length jacket that falls right above the knee. This specific quilt was made circa 1900s to 1920. It is loaded with shades of cranberry and pomegranate and very rare fabric combinations. This piece has been expertly hand quilted and perhaps the most beautiful part about this jacket is the contrasting fabric from the back of the quilt, inside of the jacket, which you can see at the rolled cuffs.
This is a very lightweight quilt otherwise known as a summerweight.
This jacket features side slits for generous movement and beautiful drape.
This jacket has two clear snaps at the tips of the collar that secure the lapel if desired.

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 special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
