Lovely vintage patchwork style cotton jacket
Vintage handmade patchwork style cotton jacket
As with a lot of my shop items this is a very vibrant and nicely made handmade piece.
Lets start with the fabric, which is a very stylish cotton in oranges, reds, turquoise, yellows , creams and light greens. It is partially abstract in design with shells , flowers, geometric and diamond patterns, with butterflies and peacocks all very unusual but works so well. The fabric itself is based on different Hexagons each with a different design within them. It is designed in a patchwork style but is stitched now in a some places giving the illusion of patchwork. I think this was added when making the jacket and not part of the fabric as it goes through to the lining.
Fully lined in red cotton which is very lightly padded. Closures are fabric knots toggles and loops. The pockets are beautifully patterned matched. All the edging is finished in contrasting red diamond patterned cotton. Side vents on each side allow for movement without bunching.
The jacket itself is cut so it gently kicks out the back with nice straight sleeves
condition - Excellent
Please note the left sleeve has a double seam on the underside, which is pattern matched. The right is cut normally again with the seam on the underside.
Measurements taken flat and doubled
sleeve length: 29" from collar seam
collar height: just under 3"
