This one was a bit difficult to date and the origin was used in Finland.
This could be a real cute short top over a regency dress. 

And Yes, wool print would be nice. 

Mathilda Rotkirch was a Finnish painter born on July 28, 1813, in Borgå, Finland. She is often recognized as the first female artist in Finland, known for her portrait paintings. Rotkirch studied art in Stockholm with Johan Gustaf Sandberg and Robert Wilhelm Ekman in the spring of 1833. She furthered her studies at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts from 1833 to 1838. In 1840–1841, she embarked on a study trip through Europe with artist Sophie Aminoff and her husband Carl Reuterskiöld, visiting various cities such as Lübeck, Hamburg, Kassel, Strasbourg, Bern, Geneva, Milan, and Paris. In Paris, she studied under the Swedish painter Per Wickenberg.

Tragically, Mathilda Rotkirch passed away in Turku in 1842 at the young age of 28 due to a lung ailment. She was laid to rest in the family graveyard at Näsebacken near Porvoo. Despite her short life, Rotkirch’s work was exhibited posthumously in Finland in 1847. Her paintings are held at prestigious institutions like Ateneum and Cygnaeus Gallery.

Grandma's Laundry Tricks:
  • Do not Brush, Rub or Scrub the printed fabrics too hard to avoid damage to print quality.
  • Wash with similar colours to avoid staining or tint.
  • Please do not overuse the centrifuge, it only wrinkles the fabric.
  • Please do not overuse the dryer or use extrem heat, this only tears the fibres apart.
  • A dehumidifier is a great invention to dry the fabrics and clothes.
  • Dry the fabrics outdoors, if possible, but not under direct sunlight.
  • Environmentally awareness and the durability of clothing go hand in hand.
  • Do You really need to use the fabric softener or is white vinegar good enough?
