Scallop Hem Skirt

I made this Jalie Tee in December from a Caramel/Copper rayon ribknit, and cut out a skirt at the same time. I finally got the skirt done the other night, and decided to cut the hem off with the scallop blade I got for my larger rotary cutter. I think it turned out pretty cute, and it's such a thin knit (probably too thin for a skirt, really) that I was afraid a hem might make it hang very strangely. I did hem the Tee with Steam-A-Seam, and it's okay, but I was kind of in the "deconstruction" mood right now anyway, so thought I'd do something radical. Here's a close up.

We went to the Pendleton outlet in Nebraska City this morning, the only one left since the Bellevue one closed last year. It's smaller, but still has great stuff. I got quite a haul. I will take photos soon, and let you all drool with me, while I gloat!

This looks so nice! I like your shoes and belt with it and the little extra wrap just makes it all very special.

I like the scallop hem on your skirt. You had great success cutting it so nicely with the rotary cutter.
