This quilt vest was made using a vintage, commerically produced, applique quilt sourced from Minnesota, from around the 1960s. It has been overdyed using an organic indigo. It is in good condition for its age, but does include signs of wear appropriate to its age. Since it is dyed with a natural dye - it is normal to see imperfections. Dyed with plants, set with a vinegar wash & washed with natural detergent. The more the garment is washed and/or left in the sun - the more likely it is to fade over time.

The pattern created for this vest has been designed to fit a variety of bodies, with a beautiful tie in the front.

This quilt is light to medium weight, perfect for layering in most seasons!

This quilt has held up well over time. Always remember that this vest is made from an antique quilt that has seen decades of love. It has already been washed and hung to dry!


arm opening: 23”

length (shoulder to bottom): 22”

first, remember this is a piece of history - likely around 100 years old. you will see signs of wear, and likely see small tears and stains, which is totally normal! take proper care and be gentle - mending as needed.

washing - deep clean about once a year by soaking in cool water with a gentle or plant based soap - preferably unscented. gently agitate and let it sit for a while - then lay flat in the sun to dry and disinfect! feel free to email us with any maintenance questions.
