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.

Ever Your Thimble Servant,
Miss Brilliantine
