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…

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