How to Make and Use a Pattern for Scalloped Edging on a Garment
Scalloped edging can be used as an attractive decoration on many garments. They are used on the edges of garments in places like; a hem, the hem of a sleeve, down the front of a jacket, around the neckline, and even smaller places like on the edge of a collar, cuff, or pocket.

To look professional and be effective scalloping should be carefully planned and measured. You want to make sure that all scallops fit within the area allowed and that there is not a 1/3 or 1/2 of a scallop left at one end. Once the scallop size is determined create a pattern using a round object. Make a template using card stock or a piece of cardboard and trace the template onto the fabric, repeating until the length is filled.

The scallops must be finished before it can be attached. There are several ways to finish a scallop depending on the fabric. Here are directions for four ways to finish scalloped edging.

How to do a self-finish on a straight edged scallop on a garment: How to finish a scalloped edge using a zigzag finish on the raw edge:
