This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1890s-1920. It was made in the traditional double Irish chain quilt pattern. This beauty is hand-quilted and hand-pieced. The quilt contains various indigos and men's shirt scraps from its era. It is backed with a cotton, muslin fabric.There are some dye color bleeds and overall age marks on some of the lighter-colored squares in this quilt. The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
In our opinion, this quilt is very thin, very soft, drapey, with little to no batting/loft/puffiness.
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.
