Scalloped details have been spotted: on the street, in the magazines and throughout the BurdaStyle member projects!
Looking through member projects is guaranteed to inspire. The members post it all a classic style or the next big trend. So, of course, when I saw the slideshow, Street Style: Scallops Edges, by The New York Times I was instantly reminded of all of the member projects I’ve seen with scalloped details. Below are a few of my favorites.
Grey Scalloped Hem Skirt by BurdaStyle member, sherrys.
Sherrys made this flattering a-line skirt for winter but it is a style that could be worn anytime of year. I really like how she chose to topstitch her hem in order to emphasize the scalloped detail.
Candy Sundress by BurdaStyle member,nettevivante.
Nettevivante created this dress specifically for a guest blog she wrote for icandy handmade. The dress i s a simple a-line shift dress with a sweet scalloped neckline. She wrote, “… the neckline takes some time and effort to finish, but it is definitely worth that.” Nettevivante has shared the self-drafted pattern with the BurdaStyle community!
Rowenta/Project Runway Challenge: Polka Dot Ruffle Dress by BurdaStyle member, distie.
Distie made this fun and youthful dress by from an old dress. She removed the sleeved and made a tiered ruffled skirt. As a finishing touch she used scalloped stitch around the edges, using a light thread to highlight the small scalloped edges.

Margeretchandler made this adorable romper using a tutorial: How to Make Scallop Hem Shorts from Old Shorts written by megannielsen on her blog. Margaret says Megan’s tutorial is “magical”, so definitely take a look. Maybe you can apply to scalloped edge to a new sewing patterns or an old pair of shorts too.
Using a tutorial like Megan’s you can create a scalloped variation of a simple sewing pattern like one of the three pictured above, Wool Shorts, Marie, and Dress with Cap Sleeves.
Above are dresses by burda style magazine with scalloped details on both the skirt and sleeves: Long Sleeve Tiered Dress and Three Quarter Sleeve Lace Dress.
