The Sunburst Chore Coat features a lightweight 100% cotton quilt that is both hand-pieced and hand quilted. This quilt was made in the mid to late 1800s, and features many beautiful fabrics from that time period and stunningly pieced together in a Sunburst pattern. The Chore Coat features a straight, boxy silhouette and two inseam side pockets. Due to some fabric degradation of the backside of the quilt, this coat has been lined with unbleached 100% cotton fabric to protect that layer and lend stability for many years to come.
This quilt is is overall good condition with some fabric degradation in the center of the flowers on main background fabric (as pictured), however it is structurally sound. 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): 24"
Length (top of the shoulder to bottom hem): 29.5"
Sleeve (armpit to sleeve hem): 16"
Arm length (against the collar to sleeve opening): 26"
