This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1890s-1920. It is beautifully both hand-sewn and hand-quilted. This quilt is an absolute masterpiece for its tiny pieces and unusual quilt pattern. We were unable to identify the exact precise pattern but we believe it to be a version of the This and That quilt pattern. The amount of tiny pieces and fabrics used from its era in this quilt is absolutely showstopping. It is also rare for a quilt with these specific fabrics to be this well preserved and we consider this piece to be in excellent condition for its age. It is backed (inside of jacket) with brown and ivory homespun gingham. This homespun gingham can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down.
- The quilt is very thin, lightweight, with a great drape and a little loft (puffiness).
- 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.
