Inspiration to this design I found from a museum collections. 
The original design is green and white with wide stripes and from the first time I saw this design, I thought that this design will make an eye-catching  early 1850s dress. 

The need would be about 6 meters and Cotton Cretonne or Popline would be my first choice. 

The name is freely borrowed from on of  Elsa Beskows books;
Tant Grön, tant Brun och tant Gredelin
Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lilac. ... And this Lady is the Brown one. :-)

Elsa Beskow was a famous Swedish author and illustrator of children’s books.
Born Elsa Maartman on February 1874, in Stockholm, Sweden, She was known for her contributions to children’s literature. She studied Art Education at Konstfack in Stockholm.

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?
