This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1900s-1929. This piece was made in the traditional Economy Patch quilt pattern. We consider this a scrappy quilt because it contains at least three different men's shirt scraps. It also contains very old, rare, and valuable chambray indigo fabrics. This piece has been beautifully hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a dying art. the brown large-scale floral fabric on the back of the quilt, inside of the jacket, is absolutely stunning. This can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down.
Please note: there is minor color bleed in at least two places on the jacket. We have tried to capture this in the photos. As always, if you wish to see this in more detail, please send us a direct message via Instagram.
In our opinion, this quilt is a soft, very lightweight, very thin, with little to no loft, quilt. It has an absolutely beautiful drape.
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.
