Thai Scallops

Added May 18, 2012

Belfast, United ...






I whipped up a quick pencil skirt with some lovely bright pink cotton eyelet that I got in Thailand last summer. I spent a bit of time lining up the scalloped hem, and I’m so pleased with the result!

The pattern used is Burda 6889 – I would highly recommend it

    I have seen a RTW skirt with a scalloped hem and have been searching for a fabric to make something similar. Your skirt looks fab and the matching is perfect!

      I got this fabric in Thailand I’m afraid. But you could try making your own scallops?
