The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1940s. It is the traditional Grandma’s Garden quilt pattern. This piece is extraordinary because not only is it beautifully hand quilted but also handsewn which means each individual tiny hexagon was sewn together by hand, which is a labor of love and a dying art.
Please note: the photos in the listing do not accurately depict the colorway in the jacket.
This quilt is considered light weight.
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.
