The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This is an American antique quilt made circa 1890-1920. This beauty was made in the traditional Grandmother’s Pride quilt pattern. Lady Lancaster found this piece in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from a very old collection. The technical skills in the quilting and the piecing are very, very high. As you can imagine, it is hand quilted beautifully as well as hand sewn.
This quilt is considered a thin lightweight quilt.
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.
