I wanted a comfy house dress + I wanted to try scalloped hem.
yes! I totally fell in love with scallop hem and I will definitely try it again :)
I used a pattern from a Japanese book, G1 and made some adjustments.

    Wow! This is the most perfect print for a scalloped hem! Wonderful job! And I agree with the comment below – this is way too nice to just wear at home! xxx
