This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1930s-1940s. This is the traditional Drunkards Path quilt pattern. This piece has been beautifully hand-stitched, which can best be seen in the beautiful fabric on the shawl collar. This quilt was made in Berks County, PA. In the 1990s this quilt was a part of a quilt exhibition. We have saved the tag from this exhibition and have put it on the cuff. This quilt has been hand sewn and hand quilted which is a labor of love and a lost art. There is one age mark on the inside of the jacket that does not show through to the inside. We have included a photo at the end of this listing for your convenience.
- We consider this jacket to be extremely light weight, otherwise referred to as summer weight. It is thin with zero to no batting or loft. Very soft cotton, with an excellent drape.
- 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.
