This is an antique, American quilt made circa 1890s-1920s. It is the traditional Irish Chain quilt pattern. This piece is beautifully hand quilted. The stitches can best be enjoyed when looking at the backing fabric. This quilt contains an extraordinary amount of rare and valuable antique indigos and calico fabrics. There is browning and age marks on two panels of the inside of the jacket which we have shown in the listing photos. There is some sun bleaching in a few areas of the indigo fabric. We consider this quilt to be thin and light weight. It is very soft and it does have loft. 

  • 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.
