This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890-1920. This is the traditional 16 Patch quilt pattern. The quilt is extraordinary because it is both hand quilted and hand sewn, which is an absolute labor of love and a lost art. We love the contrasting fabric on the inside of this jacket. This can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down. This piece will look excellent styled upside down. We consider this quilt to be extremely thin, light weight, soft, with an excellent drape. PLEASE NOTE: The navy blue polka dot fabric shows sun bleaching, specifically on the shawl collar. The fabric is in excellent condition but the color is definitely faded from the sun.
- 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.
