This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1910. It is a traditional Red Cross quilt pattern. This piece is both beautifully hand quilted and hand sewn which is a labor of love and a lost art. We cannot emphasize enough how rare the fabrics in this quilt are. This is a beautiful remnant from the turn of the century. We love the brown calico contrasting fabric on the back of the quilt which can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn inside out. In our opinion this quilt is very thin, very light weight, with a great drape. It has very little loft (batting or puffiness). This is what we consider a Lady Lancaster 10/10.
- 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

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.
