Vintage Love: Scalloped Edges

One detail that I find beautiful in vintage design and garments is the use of a scalloped motive along edges. It is a quirky, fun, and unique detail that can be incorporated easily into modern clothing design.
Notice the delicate scallops on the neckline of this 1950s evening dress. They add a bit of youthfulness and interest to an otherwise traditional design.
