Round it Out Scallop-Edged Dress

Pin It

This dress started with the neckline.  Then I thought, Hmmm... what if I just do everything as rounded as I can?

Voila.  Now we know what happens: the Round it Out Scallop-Edged Dress.

 



 Like I said, I decided on the neckline first-- a little scoop-y. :)

 Yes, we do occasionally drink our tea party tea out of mini beer steins.  Doesn't everyone?


The dress is completely lined, with teal on top and a Chevron-esque fabric on the skirt.  The armholes are finished with bias tape.
 

My favorite part of the dress-- BY FAR-- is the scallop hem on the wrap-around skirt.
 

The skirt has two layers of coordinating Lisette fabrics.  It also has an elasticized waist for a more feminine fit.

Just in case you were getting bored of my excess of pictures, here's Little Sister, yucking it up during our tea party. :)

Just one more, for good measure.  It's the perfect dress for practicing ballet, apparently. :)

I love comments more than I love buying new fabric, and that's saying something. :)
