This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1930s. It is the traditional broken star quilt pattern, made in a very untraditional color palette. To find a broken star with this much blue and in this fabric combination is very rare and we are fortunate to have worked with this beauty. This piece is extraordinary because it is both hand sewn and hand quilted which is a labor of love and a lost art. This piece contains many floral fabrics from the 30's. We consider this to be a light to medium weight and thickness. It is very soft cotton with a beautiful drape and moves beautifully when worn. Please note that the blue fabric has discoloration throughout which can be seen in the last photo of the listing. If this kind of thing bothers you this may not be a good jacket for you.

  • 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 Jacket has a generous fit and is not meant to have a tailored look.

  • One Size Fits Most

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.
