So, as far as my shoe-shop career girl appropriate attire planning goes, I intend to follow the rest of the sewing blogosphere and go all-out scallops. I don’t know what it is about them, but suddenly they are everywhere. And I want some. I want them on everything. I don’t care that they are a bit fiddly. I will use a pattern if I have to. I might even buy something from Swonderful with them. I’m a bit partial to this dress by Papercup, and if they don’t stock them anymore I might just have to whip up my own version. Scallops are everywhere and I want on the bandwagon.
Let me drag you into this tangled web of appealingly rounded edges.

Yes, I’m a bit of a fan of the old Tilly and her Betty Draper suit was my first exposure to the wonders of the scallop. She actually has some good pointers on creating scallops. Yes, I’ll be looking at those with interest when I take the plunge…

Okay, I’ll have to keep it brief because all this cutting and pasting is beginning to do my head in. This is what kicked off tonight’s scallopmania: Adey Lim’s lovely outfit for the Sew Weekly blog, and its free pattern. I just printed it out, though the joining symbols are so faint it’ll probably end up a headache for another day.
Tra la la!
