Inspiration to this design: I Found from The Metmuseum collections.
The original is a silk Robe à la Française from 1750–75.

About this design
I have not tried to modernise the design but keep the 18th century hand painted touch.

Fabric Choice is Silk dupioni
but is think this could come out nicely even as a Cotton Satin dress. 

This fabric is dedicated to: Ulla von Höpken
Ulrika "Ulla" Eleonora von Höpken, later von Wright, born von Fersen on March 24, 1749, was a Swedish noblewoman and stateswoman. She was one of the most well-known personalities of the Gustavian era and is known in history as one of the "Three Graces". During her time, she was well known for her love life, is mentioned in contemporary memoirs and diaries and has also been portrayed in culture.

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?
