The Indigo Overdyed Feathered Star Chore Coat features a lightweight 100% cotton quilt that is both hand-pieced and hand quilted, with an appliquéd border. This quilt was found at an estate sale outside of Asheville, North Carolina and quite stained, tattered, and worn. I was able to salvage the best parts, and garment dyed this piece in indigo after constructing the coat. The Chore Coat features a straight, boxy silhouette, large patch front pockets, and antique brass snaps.
This quilt is fair vintage condition - the backing is structurally sound as is much of the base fabric, with lots of age, fabric wear and degradation to the colored pieces within the feathered star blocks. These are not viewed as flaws, but rather giving it character and showing it's history. I have done my best to capture these areas in the photos, but is possible that not all are photographed. Please review all images as returns are not accepted - no exceptions.
Measurements (taken flat across) - due to the slightly oversized fit, this can accommodate a range of sizes - it is best to measure a coat you already own:
Chest (armpit to armpit): 20.75"
Length (top of the shoulder to bottom hem): 26"
Sleeve (armpit to sleeve hem): 17.5"
Arm length (against the collar to sleeve opening): 28"
