Today you will see how you can adapt the same scallop and base dress to make your own line of fashionable dresses. I have made these dresses into note cards that measures 4.25″ wide by 6″ high. I had so much fun with these cuties–I cannot wait to make more!!
First to show you the basic dress with slightly altered sides. Look carefully. Start with a round scallop with 30 scallops. (The scalloped circle was made using the software that operates my Pazzles Inspiration Vue personal die-cutter.) The top of the dress has 4 scallops and the bottom, 8.
Now, we’ll take it up a notch. Again start with a round scallop with 30 scallops. The top of the dress has 4 scallops and the bottom, 8. Cut away a tad more then 2 scallops neighboring the 4 top scallops. This leaves almost 7 full scallops on the side.
You have two choices:
Fold the seven scallop piece toward the middle on each side. This works nicely if you use double-sided paper/card stock and like the built in complimentary patterns.
Or, cut off the 7 scallops and reposition them. In this case I used the same patterned paper.
Then embellish. Here is this style in it’s finished state. I love these!! Especially the Rose dress. Thanks for joining me for this week of scallops. I hope I was able to show you something new and perhaps inspire you. If you have any questions on this week’s creations, do contact me. I will be listing some of these in my online shop.
