An Echino dress

Is there anything prettier in this world than Echino fabric? Probably not. That’s what I realized when I saw this dress. And so, I went looking for this out-of-print fabric online, found it, and made a simple A-line dress for Norah. And a cell phone pouch. And a banner for my blog.

the front
the back

I started from a pattern from Style Petite Fille, but made some changes. In the original model, the back was cut in 2 pieces, but I thought it would be a pity cutting through the gorgeous design of the fabric. So instead, I cut it in 1 piece, and made a drop-shaped back closing with bias. Pretty happy with the result, and I still have half of the fabric left to make something else…
