This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1940s-1950s. This quilt pattern has been referred to throughout history as the Pennsylvania, the Simple Cross, the Single Irish Chain, or the Criss Cross quilt pattern. It is beautifully hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. There are several patches throughout this quilt and because the patches integrate perfectly into the pattern, they did not show up when we tried to capture them via photograph. if you would like more details or would like to see a video please send us a direct message and we will be happy to share more info! We believe this quilt was at one time a part of a quilt project or exhibition because there was a number on the corner of the quilt that we have preserved on the inside of the shawl collar. We love the inside fabric of this quilt which can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn upside down.
In our opinion, this quilt is very soft, very light, with little batting, and has a great 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.
