The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This specific quilt is a Hexagon around the world quilt pattern. It was made circa the 1930s by a meticulous maker. The inside of the jacket is a perfect tangerine color which you can see contrasted on the rolled cuffs. This quilt was hand quilted and hand-pieced which would have taken hundreds and hundreds of hours. The pieces are tiny and full of feedsack fabrics. This jacket is a wearable masterpiece. The quilt is in excellent condition for its age.
It has been preloved.
This jacket is 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.
