Lone star quilts are in my top five favorite quilt designs, especially for coat making. They just translate so well to coats. I have a lone star coat but also have a long star on my bed so, they’re pretty versatile. I also really love when these quilts are done in colors as bold as these. It’s a true statement piece. I would say this is a medium weight coat. It will not keep you warm enough in Buffalo in January. The star on this particular quilt was big enough to get hand warmer style pockets out of it and have them fit perfectly into the design on the front. I love it when that happens!
I try to give my best guess on the sizing but encourage you to always use your measurements. It can be tricky to measure your own body and add in enough extra space for ease and such so my best advice is to measure something you already have and love the fit of. That being said, based on the measurements, this hoodie would likely be best for someone who generally wears a L/XL depending on how you like the fit.

The materials I use are vintage and will show some wear and minor imperfections. This is a beautiful patina that comes from years of love and mending. Any major imperfections are carefully repaired through visible mending. My goal is first to make you a garment that is sturdy af and will last a lifetime and second, a one of a kind piece of wearable art. I recommend washing your new garment on a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry. Thank you for being part of Mother Nature’s Army by supporting slow fashion.
