Made another wrap dress with the YCMT pattern. Used the acorn cord that we have seen a lot of on this board for Fall. I recall some super cute overalls by christephi in the same fabric last month. I wanted to make a ruffle bottom but decided to do a scallop edge bottom instead. Scallop edge instructions are a few comments down.

I do ruffles, but this was just as easy since I had a top fabric and a lining to sandwich the scallops between.
Cut out a template of the individually size scallop in a wide half circle (teacup shape) with a straight top. Then measure how many you need to line the dress bottom.  Cut two pieces per scallop for a front and back. With the scallop fabric right sides together sew along the bottom curve (but not the top). Turn inside out for finished scallop piece and iron.  I wanted a slight overlap in the scallop so there was a bit of a layered loop. Lie the finished scallops side by side along dress bottom. The bottom of the dress should have a single unsewn fold for the hem. Sandwich the scallops between the dress top fabric and the lining and pin. Sew a top stitch to secure the layers  of cord top fabric, scallops, white lining. The lining needs to be thin since you are really sewing 5 fabric pieces together top of dress, fold for hem, 2 thickness scallop, lining.

Yes, they are currently my favorite shoes to buy her, I love the flexible sole and that they are so well made. She is in 18-24 now so unless they start making them bigger, I guess we'll have to move on. Another flexible shoe I love to buy is Soft Stars but the pedipeds are more girly and cheaper.

i had little brown mary-jane pedipeds for 6-12mos and i loved them sooo much, way better than robeez, but just as she went to outgrow them DD also got super into taking shoes off. So now I'm back to robeez, which I only really liked for 0-6mos, because she can't get them off, or she has some cowgirl boots she can't get off too. pedipeds are by far my fav though, I felt they had more support than robeez while still being flexible. Plus they looks super cute with jeans or with fancy dresses. And hey, she was running by 8 mos so they couldn't have been a bad thing, lol.
sign me up for the pedipeds fan club. LOL
