This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1930s. It is a scrappy quilt and can also be considered a Crazy Quilt. It contains many historical rare indigos, mens shirt scraps, women's dress scraps, as well as some feed sacks and homespun ginghams. This piece is hand quilted and hand sewn. We love the black calico fabric on the inside of the quilt which can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down. Please note: There are multiple places throughout the quilt where the hand sewing has lifted and has gotten gappy. We have attempted to zig zag stitch over those areas to ensure many more years of use. In our opinion, this quilt is extremely soft, very thin, very lightweight, with a little loft. 

  • This is a very light weight, very thin quilt.
  • 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
  • If you have any questions about this jacket please direct message us on instagram and we will answer your question as quickly as possible. We do not accept returns.

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.
