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 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…


  1. It's lovely ! you had a very good inspiration by changing the pattern !

  2. elle est superbe !! et ce tissu est magnifique !

  3. La simplicité du patron va bien au tissu, en effet, il ne fallait pas couper le dos en 2!

  4. Wouah elle est magnifique! J'adore le tissu.
