This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1930. It is the traditional 4 Patch quilt pattern. This beauty has been expertly hand sewn using very tight stitches and hand quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. This quilt is backed in a beautiful green, black, and brown print. Which is a great compliment when the sleeves are cuffed or the jacket is worn upside down. In our opinion, this piece is very thin, very soft, very light weight, with an excellent drape. It was never made for warmth and purely aesthetics. So if you are looking for something bulkier and warmer, this is not your jacket. If you love a soft and very drapey quilt this is a perfect candidate for you. Please check out video at the end of the listing for more details.
- 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.
