I have date this one a bit later. It could be a 1820s design also, but 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. 

Ida Silfverberg was a Finnish painter born in Helsinki in 1834 and passed away in Florence in 1899. She was known for painting in Germany, France, and Italy. Silfverberg started her artistic journey at a young age, painting copies of artworks at the Finnish Art Association’s exhibition when she was just 15 years old. She later specialized in creating copies of paintings by Dutch artists from the collection of the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden. Throughout her career, she gained recognition for her talent, winning prizes such as the second prize in the Finnish Ducat Competition in 1860 and the first prize in the same competition in 1862.

Silfverberg’s work included genres like portraiture and genre scenes. One notable piece attributed to her is “Woman teaching a Child to Read,” which was initially believed to be by Pehr Hilleström until her true signature was discovered after a forged Hillstrom signature was exposed as fraudulent.

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?
