Inspiration to this design I have found from a 1790 dress made of block printed cotton fabric. The Original fabric was made in England for the export market.

The chosen fabric Silk Chiffon for more Regency Style. Sew a open dress with a colourful lining and you will have a dress that will be used often.

At the moment the order quantity is 8 meters. The fabric is 140 cm wide. 

 The Chosen Name is Catharina Juliana Eckerman
She was a Countess mistress, alleged spy. A scandal-ridden holding lady to Gustaf III's closest man, Carl Sparre. She was suspected of spying on Russian envoys.

Julie Ekerman was born in 1765 in Stockholm, in a family with a solid bourgeois background in Östergötland's power elite. On both her mother's and father's side, she descended from influential people in the so-called magistrate corps, which consisted of mayors and other royally appointed state representatives. Her father Bengt Edvard Ekerman, however, chose another path and made a career in the army. Modern Catharina Ahlgren eventually became a translator and editor of the magazine Brefwäxling, where she, among other things, gives voice to ideas about women's rights in marriage.

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?
