H+H original design. Mid length pleated shawl collar coat made in my studio from an antique touching stars quilt. Hidden pockets on the hip seams. Beauty in the details of over 100 year old fabrics hand pieces together...indigo and madder dyed calicos, early woven gingham, and a few mourning calicos. Inside is the original quilt backing made of a soft grey butterfly motif calico and shows up in blocks throughout the outside quilt design too. fits XS-M, shown on XS + M.

* This quilt was in fairly rough shape when I found it. Some of the dyes in the mourning calicos have weakened the fabric in places. I have worked to strengthen the quilt where necessary, but some of the areas of fabric that are somewhat shredded I’ve left to represent the authenticity of the quilt. The backing is strong throughout and should maintain the integrity of the coat. Even after many soaks, there were some areas of discoloration in one area of the gingham that I could not lift. Those stains are visible on this coat, so if you’re looking for a pristine antique, this one may not be for you.
each garment in the wonderland collection has been charged with the reiki energy of rosemary, holly and ivy. Rosemary for clarity in creativity. Holly for protection. Ivy for transformation.
