Scalloped edges can sweeten almost any style, adding a pretty, feminine touch to a garment. We’ve rounded up a few looks with simply stunning scallops!

This embellishment is popping up everywhere this summer, and not just on hems! The stunning neckline on the dress above is definitely eye-catching. Even with a low-cut neck, the soft curves add elegance. You can easily transform a style by sewing a scalloped edge. Since you’d have a very hard time hemming each and every curve, the best way to finish a scalloped edge is to create a facing.

The subtle scallops along the hem of this LBD spice up an otherwise ordinary dress.

The stylish hem of this jacket stands out against the black skirt. A light summer jacket with scalloped edges would look adorable over a breezy sundress!

Here’s another take on a scalloped neckline. This intriguing cutout brightens up a black dress.

Smooth curves along the hem of this crop top make this revealing ensemble look a little more innocent! The soft mint fabric really enhances the look.

Will you incorporate edges this sweet detail into any of your summer styles?

    I’m currently adapting the popular wrap blouse from the April issue to a version with scalloped edges. I agree with you guys that scallops make a garment more special!

    I think I like the way the scalloped-hemmed dress looks better than any of the others, which are just too…. I’m not really sure what it is that I don’t find very attractive, but the subtley of the scalloped hem is the one I, personally, find the most attractive!
