This an american, Antique quilt made circa 1890's-1920. It is both hand quilted and hand sewn. Lady Lancaster found this piece in rural Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. As you can see it is predominantly indigo. This much indigo in a quilt is super rare to find and this is a true slice of rare American history. The quilt pattern on this jacket was very hard for us to identify from the quilt encyclopedia. The maker went a bit rogue and we believe tweaked or combined multiple quilt patterns. The closest match we found is called the Lady's Wreath, but again a derivation. This is a light weight quilt with some loft and is extremely soft. The back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) is a thin flannel fabric so even though the jacket is lightweight it may feel a little warmer due to the fabric choice of the maker.
- This is a very light weight, very thin quilt.
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.
