One of my favorite sewing touches is scallops! Pretty on a hem, as trim, on a neckline, on kids or grown-ups.. this sweet touch is never out of style. It can make something simple look really high-class! Let's look at some patterns, shall we? :)

This is one of the earliest patterns I could find with scallop detail! This cute child's coat has scallop trim on the cuffs and collar. This little coat would still look darling on a child today.

Scallops continued to be a popular motif into the 1920s as seen here in this beautiful Butterick pattern. The closure imitates the interesting design at the waist.
