Size Medium. One of a kind. Made from vintage quilt. Handmade in NY State.
Every Farewell Frances article of clothing is made from recycled and often vintage quilts. There is a rich history of quilting dating back for centuries. Many of the quilts are decades if not one-hundred years old. They were made with love, often by hand and hold countless stories within their threads.
A Farewell Frances Coat has been sewn right here in the United States by independent Seamstresses and Seamsters. Just as much love goes into the second life of this quilt as went into the first.
Farewell Frances is the combination of Carly Scheck’s dreamy vintage aesthetic, easy-going nature and desire to give new life to once forgotten treasures. Her philosophy is that we should make do with what we have. She is inspired by the quilts she finds and feels they were given life by their original creators and now she can help give them a second life.
