This is an Antique American quilt. Made circa 1890s-1920s. It is an Album quilt pattern. The Album quilt pattern was very commonly used for friendship quilts. We believe this was actually a Sunday School quilt. There are quite a few names hand embroidered in the center of the quilt square. Some of the names include Grover May, J.M. Sanders, Mrs. Anice Elston. In addition to the hand embroidery the quilt is hand sewn and hand quilted. It is rare to find a quilt with this much antique indigo fabric, we especially love the ticking flannel backing fabric, which can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn upside down. In our opinion the quilt is very soft, very lightweight, with loft(batting or 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 - Model is 5’4 and approximately 125lbs

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.
