This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1890s-1915. It is the traditional Lady's Aid Block quilt pattern. This piece is both hand-quilted and hand-sewn. It is extraordinary for its tiny pieced, saw-toothed border, which can best be appreciated on the cuffs and on the shawl collar. Another factor that should not be overlooked in this quilt is the rare and beautiful combination of the indigo fabrics mixed with pastels and florals. We cannot say enough about the fabrics in this beautiful quilt. If you are a collector and love rare curiosities like we do, you will understand why we consider this piece a 10/10. To top it all off, the black calico fabric on the back of the quilt, inside of the jacket, completes this overall look and can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is styled upside down.
- We consider this quilt to be butter soft, very thin, and lightweight, with an excellent drape and little to no 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.
