Scallop Hem Floral Mini
Added May 21, 2010
I adapted the sheath dress pattern from Wendy Mullin’s book Built By Wendy Dresses and used the vain and vapid tutorial for the scallop edge. I added seam allowance to the pattern and drew the pockets. Instead of sewing the hem area as suggested by the scallop edge tutorial, I used bias tape to finish it so that it does not show on the right side of the dress. To ensure that the hem stays in place, I stitched it to the sides of the dress, the bottom seams of the pockets and the back centre seam. I used a thin orange bias tape for the pockets as I didn’t have piping but am happy with the end result.
