scalloped skirt

 i thought i would write up an uninformative tutorial on the scalloped skirt…cause it IS my favorite thing….. now. i really did think about finishing the edges..but it really just wouldn’t give the effect i wanted. i wanted it be light and fluffly and comfortable. like a jersey skirt…but more than just a plain jersey skirt. i […]
