This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1920s-1930s. It is the traditional Dolly Madison's workbox, robbing Peter to pay Paul, or Steeplechase quilt pattern. The quilt is beautifully hand-sewn and hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. This piece is a 10/10 by our standards. The fabric combinations, the weight, and the drape are perfection. If you like to wear your Ethel jackets upside down, this is a great candidate for you. The backing fabric is delightfully charming and can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn upside down.

There are a few tiny yellowing marks throughout this jacket, that can be seen on the white fabric. However, they are tiny and we could not capture them well in photographs. If you would like more detail, please reach out to us via direct message and we would be more than happy to show you a video of this. 

  • In our opinion, this quilt is lightweight, very thin, with little to no batting. 
  • 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. If you have any doubt please do not purchase. For sizing questions direct message us via instagram and we will be happy to send videos showing how our jackets fit.

 

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.
