This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1920s-1930s. It is the traditional Nine Patch quilt pattern. It is both hand quilted and hand sewn. Which is a labor of love and a lost art. This piece contains some mens shirt scraps as well as ginghams and indigos from its era. The back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) is a muted reddish/pinkish fabric that adds a nice aspect of interest and depth to the overall appearance of the jacket. We consider this quilt to be extremely light weight and thin. It is soft with a good drape. Please note that the dye from the blue indigo squares have bled when washed through to the back of the quilt. Some of the bleeding can also be seen on the front of the quilt. We have tried our best to show this in the last two photos in the listing.
- This is a very light weight, very thin quilt.
- The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
- This jacket has two clear snaps that disappear into the fabric at the bottom of the shawl collar to help the lapel drape nicely.
- The Aunt Ethel has slouchy shoulders and a generous fit, keeping in line with its bohemian roots.
- One Size Fits Most

Please note that all of our jackets are made from antique quilts and the fabric reflects this. Our fabrics are sometimes older than 100 years and we believe that makes them perfectly imperfect. This is what makes them a one-of-a-kind piece of art. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend spot cleaning if necessary.
