The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This jacket is made from an American antique quilt made circa the 1940s. This beauty is hand quilted and is a one-of-a-kind combination of colors, patterns, and fabrics. There is a variety of 1940s florals paired with a few madras men’s shirt scraps. This piece is very cheerful and fun. The inside of the jacket, back of the quilt, is yellow which is a great contrast to all the other colors. This piece is extraordinary as it was both hand quilted and hand-sewn which is a labor of love and a dying art.
This quilt is considered lightweight.
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.
