The Aunt Ethel features a cropped look. This is a very unusual antique quilt. This specific quilt is a variation on the traditional nine patch pattern. It was made circa 1930’s/1940’s. This jacket is special because not only was it hand quilted by a very good quilter at seven or eight stitches per inch, but it was entirely hand sewn. This is a true work of art, and it is in great condition for it’s age.
This quilt was hand quilted and hand sewn, which would have taken hundreds of hours to complete.
Most of our quilts are made of cotton.
This jacket is light to medium-weight and has a beautiful floppy drape when worn.
The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
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 special restoration quilt wash. We recommend spot cleaning if necessary.
