Scalloped dress by Lotusgrace
I immediately set about finding some fabric (like I need more) and a pattern that would work. On Fabric.com, I found this lovely sateen shantung. One side of it is shiny and the other side is like a silk dupioni. For this dress, I used royal, tiff blue, and white but I bought some other colors for a future project.
I immediately thought of S3833 because it has the same general shape to it as the Lotusgrace dress and it was in my stash.
I left the bodice as it is on this pattern because it already has a curved bottom to it that sort of looks like a scallop. In order to achieve the scalloped hem, I used this tutorial on Madeira Applique. The madeira applique was not hard---just a little trying of your patience. The pattern went together very easily with no alterations in fit.
