This is a listing for a jacket that will be made from a blanket or quilt that you will bring or ship to us. You will cover shipping to us in Pittsburgh, PA. We will cover return shipping.
Before purchasing, please email a well-lit picture of your blanket or quilt to email@example.com and include measurements.
Size requirement: This is a general guideline. We understand that vintage blankets come in a myriad of sizes.
Short Length sleeveless 55" x 70"
Med Length with sleeves 66" x70"
Long Length with sleeves 62" x 82"
Extra Long Length with sleeves 74" x 80"
Fabric condition: Vintage blankets are great but please ensure that it is in usable condition and fabric is not torn, brittle or needs mending. The batting should not be exposed. Fraying at the sides is generally fine and a great sign that the blanket is ready for a new life. Please pre-wash the blanket before shipping it to us. If it needs minimal mending, please discuss possibilities with us or consider our studio mate's mending service, Old Flame Mending.
Indigo Dip: If your quilt (cotton/ natural fibers only) is stained, consider having it indigo dipped by our studio mate Reba Harmon. This is a $30 service and will add an additional 2 weeks to the turnaround time. This service is only available through September 2021.
Sizing: Please note that if you have previously purchased a jacket from us before, the pattern and sizing has been updated. Sizes are unisex. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
For example, if you normally wear a women’s S dress, you would wear the XS jacket for normal oversized fit. This is just a guide, there are lots of customers who are S and buy XL jackets! See size chart for measurements. It’s a matter of preference.
Please write the following in the notes as you check out: length, size, main side, ig handle if you'd like to be tagged. If you would like us to mail the scraps back, please include that as well.
If you have a preference as to which side you’d like to be the “main” side (with the pockets), please let us know in the notes. Otherwise, we will choose a side for you.
If you’d like us to tag you in our Instagram page when your jacket is complete, please leave your handle after you make all your style choices.
Our Bring Your Own is on a sewing schedule and we’ll be dropping off the blankets to be sewn twice a month. What does this mean for you? If you order a jacket between the 31st - 15th of the month, your jacket will be made within 4-6 weeks of the 15th. If you order between the 16th and the 30th, your jacket will be made within 4-6 weeks of the 30th. Please understand that if any unexpected issues arise it may take longer and we will be in touch.
