The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1940s-1960s and possibly earlier. It was very hard for us to date this piece. This piece is absolutely beautifully hand quilted and it is also hand sewn, which is a labor of love and a dying art. We had to patch this quilt in multiple places but it is very, very hard to tell that we patched it. This was a true rescue.
The jacket is extremely soft and lightweight.
Please note: there is a little bit of fabric fray throughout this piece.
In order to accurately portray the most authentic color, we included additional images at the end of the listing for complete transparency.
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.
