Both of your skirts came out great! I love the scalloped hem - that looks like it would be tricky to sew as cleanly as you have.

jen_e, Your scalloped skirt and the halter outfit are so cute. I am a little curious about your dress form. It looks custom made. Did you make it? And, if you did, how did you do that?

Thanks for the nice comments! Raggrack- yes I made my dressform. It's a "duct tape double." It's a custom form made of duct tape and is the exact duplicate of my body. I couldn't live without it, it's helped me so much. You can find more information on the internet or by searching the boards.

Star: the scallop hem is very easy, basically you start with a regular hem, then make another strip of fabric and trace your scallop pattern on it. Pin this to the skirt hem with right sides together, sew along scallop lines, trim, and turn to inside.
