This is spring in a coat! The Hyacinth cropped jacket is made from an American quilt dating from the 1950's, that was hand quilted. This is a buttery soft garmet and the colours are so vibrant still considering the age of the quilt. There are small areas of wear and aging which is to be expected for a quilt of this age, and any larger areas of wear have been hand stitched and repaired. This jacket has also been made to be reversible, as the back of the quilt features beautiful plaid material in blues and red.
The Hyacinth jacket features a shawl collar, two large patch pockets, dropped shoulder seams and an oversized, slouchy fit. One size fits most. This quilt is lightweight meaning the jacket drapes beautifully and is perfect for layering over other items of clothing.
This is a perfectly imperfect piece of art that has been made with love and cared for over many years, and we hope it will continue to be passed down through generations to come. This quilt has been pre-washed with care and we recommend only spot cleaning to ensure the preservation of the hand stitches across the garment.
