Vintage Details: Scallops everywhere!

I’m a wee bit obsessed with the scallop detail with this Du Barry dress on ebay. Even though it looks to have been shortened considerably, I’d still buy it in an instant if I could fit into its 24 inch waist (ha!).

But I can still be inspired by it. Check out the rows and rows of scallops on this beauty! I’d love to see what the inside of this dress looks like.

Normally, I can break down those wonderful vintage details into something fairly simple, but I do believe taking on something like this would be firmly in the advanced category, if only for the amount of time it would take.

I can hardly imagine sewing in that detail with such a slippery fabric. There must be some real sewing saints out there.

yes, that is indeed a labour of love, even with insider knowledge on short-cuts!
