This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1920s-1930s. It is important to note that the quilt top was made in that era; however, it was backed at a much later date, most likely the 70s. The backing fabric, inside of the jacket, is a cheater quilt fabric, which can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn upside down. This is a traditional Log Cabin quilt pattern. It is beautifully hand-quilted and hand-sewn. It contains several men's shirt scraps and other beautiful fabrics from its era.
- In our opinion, this quilt is very thin and lightweight with little to no batting. It is soft with a beautiful drape.
- 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.
