This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1920s-1930s. It is the traditional Lone Star quilt pattern. This quilt is a bit of a mystery to us because the front of the jacket reads more 1930s but the fabrics used for the center star and on the back of the jacket are turn of the century including some homespun gingham and old indigo. We love ironies in design and we feel that this piece is a beautiful contradiction of decades from back to front. In addition the quilt is beautifully hand quilted using interlocked rings. It is both hand and machine sewn. The back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) is a cotton muslin fabric. In our opinion, this quilt is in very good condition. It is thin, light weight, with medium loft. It has a great drape.
- 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.
