The fabric for this dress is from a store in Oaxaca, Mexico. Josh went there for a film festival 1.5 years ago and brought me back tons of fabric (he's a keeper)! The simple silhouette of the Ebony works perfectly with the large pattern and bright colors on the fabric. I lined the fabric up so the pattern would go straight down the center in the front and back. I made sure to have the front neckline start in the center of one of the orange shapes, so the orange has kind of a necklace affect. The only other dress I've attempted with all my Oaxacan fabric was a Colette wren dress. I wear that one all the time too :) I went to Oaxaca with Josh this year and it is a beautiful city with very talented people and delicious food!

Did I like the pattern? Definitely. It was super fast and easy, and it's cute so that's a win-win.
