We were able to get one more jacket out of this lovely pink square quilt. We had enough quilt for the front panels and collar. We matched the blue in the pink square quilt with another blue quilt and then added a gorgeous 1930s star for the back details. This coat has side seam pockets and shirt tail hem.
Textile History: The star on the back is hand-pieced from a Norwegian women. Dated to the 1930s.
**All of our quilted items have been hand washed and line dried however they are O L D quilts and you can expect minor stains (even I can't get all the stains out!) and minimal holes. We try and work around the holes when laying out the pattern pieces.
Vintage Pink Squares Quilted Jacket
I would handwash this particular jacket because of the handsewn textile on the back of the coat. Immerse in cold water in the bathtub or other large tub with some Borax. Let soak and hand dry.
