Inspiration to this design I have found from a Block printed Textile Fragment 

My fabric choice is Cotton cretonne. The petticoat is about 1 meter long from waist and down. I have not changed this. 
The design is printed lengthwise why three meters is needed. The rest of the fabric can be used for the hem and for the hem for the underskirt. Or something else, the choice is yours. 

If you are making a dress, please Choose the other  1780 Olympe de Gouges article.

The given name is Olympe de Gouges, originally Marie Gouze, born May 7, 1748 in Montauban, died by execution November 3, 1793, was a French revolutionary. She was a political activist, feminist, author and playwright. She is the author of the Declaration on the Rights of Women and Citizens (1791). De Gouges was an advocate for the rights of women, slaves and illegitimate children, and argued for a kind of welfare state and redistributive politics using taxes.

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?
