This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1930s-1950s. It was made in the traditional Fan quilt pattern. It has been both hand-sewn and hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and lost art. It is very rare to come across a fan pattern in this turquoise color, and we are always thrilled when we can work with rare palettes. We have identified a couple of historic feedsack fabrics as well as some juvenile fabrics in this piece from this era.
- While this quilt is lightweight, it does have some loft; however, that does not affect the drape and the softness. This jacket is not stiff. It drapes beautifully but it does have loft (puffiness).
- 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.
