I Take on the Scallops
Here again is the inspiration dress. Not a note for note copy, more like collaborating with the past.
Worth ball gown Philadelphia Museum
Here's how I manged the scallops. First I cut out the pattern on card stock, measuring the hem and dividing it by the number if scallops I wanted.
I drew the pattern on the lining, and pinned it. Then I crossed my fingers and sewed.
And it worked! I cut out the scallops very close to the sewing then turned and pressed.
So far so good. Now let's see if the other side cooperates.
