This is an American, antique quilt completed in November of 1939. This piece was made in the traditional Lone Star quilt pattern. We know this because the maker quilted the month and date, which we have preserved and can be seen on the side of the jacket. This quilt is beautifully hand-quilted and hand-sewn, which is a labor of love and a lost art. There are a few zig-zag mends throughout the piece; but, for the most part, this quilt is in excellent condition for its age. We love the custard lemony yellow backing fabric on this quilt, which can best be appreciated when the jacket is cuffed or worn upside down.
- In our opinion, this quilt is soft, thin, and lightweight. It is not the drapiest quilt we have ever worked with, as it does hold its structure more than some of our other jackets. However, we would not go so far as to say this piece is stiff by any means.
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.
