Summer DIY #6: Scalloped Mini



Dress- created and designed by me
Purse- China
Shoes- Qupid
Dog- Brownie

      I started working on this little piece in the morning and i'm finally finished. I bought this fabric in the Sham Sui Po district in Hong Kong. These streets were swamped with fabric wholesalers and the occasional retail fabric shops. I've been looking for a type of jersey knit, fine, soft, and stretchy fabric for a while now, and I finally found it! I'm not really sure what fabric it is, but it floats my boat.
     Since my last post, i've been really scallop-frenzy. As you can see in the shirt, I cut out a scallop hem for the bottom. I sealed the frays with a fabric glue called "Fray Check", it does what it's suppose to but it dries dark on light-colored clothes. I added a collar too giving it some pizzazz, because otherwise it would be too plain. 
    It's around my 6th piece I made so far of the summer. I created some other pieces before I traveled to China. But i've been too busy to post them all up just yet, but I will be uploading those soon!
