    Love the summer dress. Thanks for the closeup of the neckline! Are the scallops easy to make or do they require the patience of a sewist that does not lose her temper? I tend to abandon a project for a day if a seam and I are not getting along by the third attempt.

      They aren’t that difficult, actually. Just make sure you put some fusible interfacing on them and then trim your seams down and do lots of notches and they should be fine!
