This is a vintage, American quilt made circa 1950s-1960s. It is both hand sewn and hand quilted. We are completely smitten with the quirky fabrics in this quilt. Many of the fabrics contain a butterfly motif. The back of the quilt, inside of the jacket, has a lovely pink floral contrast which is best seen when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down. If you love to wear your Ethel's upside down this is a great jacket for you. We consider this piece to be thin, light weight, and extremely soft with an excellent drape. This is a very comfy piece. PLEASE NOTE: There is some obvious sun bleaching on the pink background fabric and this is best seen on the front panels. One of the front jacket panels is a different pink than the other and this is a result of sun bleaching most likely when this quilt was hung on a wash line in its previous life. The integrity of the fabric is not affected by the sun bleach. PLEASE NOTE: THE SLEEVES ON THIS ETHEL ARE 1 INCH SHORTER THAN OUR STANDARD PATTERN. If you have longer limbs or like your jacket sleeves to be extremely long this may not be a good jacket for you. 

  • 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
  • If you have any questions about this jacket please direct message us on instagram and we will answer your question as quickly as possible. We do not accept returns.

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.
