Scalloped Top and Cotton Blouse

Added Jul 9, 2016

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






Scuba is perfect for scallop since it doesn’t fringe, and you don’t need to overlock any seams. Since the fabric is double sided I think it was great to combine the both sides. The neck seam is bended forward and stitched in place, and the same with the sleeves. This is a top I can use all year around ;)
I like the pattern of the blouse and had to try it. The sleeves looked very long on the picture, so I’ve shorten them by 5cm, and it was the right length for me. I’ve used cotton voile and It’s very soft and perfect for a hot summer day ☼
The shorts are an earlier project.

Material Notes

Double sided scuba fabric and Cotton voile.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Cotton, Knits/Jersey

    I like the both too:-) And thank you for the idea with shortened sleeve for the first top, I think about making it. The white one is very stylish on you and makes think about warm sunny days and long staying outdoors… What is more relaxing!
