Sartorial Bucket List # 12.1 : Scalloped Skirt

March 10, 2011

I am head over heels in love with skirts, dresses, and shorts with scalloped hems. I even plan to DIY one myself this weekend. 

After several failed attempts in securing tiered scallop skirts from Urban Outfitters and ASOS, I was happy to find this perfectly mini and perfectly red scalloped skirt from Jack BB Dakota.

A part of me wishes that I ordered two sizes up as the XS sits pretty close to my natural waist. Kimmie from Blue Paper Lanterns ordered a few sizes up from her normal size and it's a much better length on her.

Aubrey & Jessy - is this better than the butterfly?

This skirt is now out of stock. I'll post if I see another source that carries this skirt.

Top : Stella McCartney for Target White Lace Top
Skirt : Jack BB Dakota Red Liz Skirt
Shoes :
Corso Como Delicious Pump in Beige Patent

  9. Elle! I love it. I wish I had only ordered one size up from my natural size, because mine just hangs on my hips, and it's not very flattering. Yours looks great though, I love the color!

  10. wow this skirt is so much better than that f21 we were talking about. and good pairing w/the white lace top.

    haha, I like the little girl's face. Where is she from? Despicable me?

    This is fun. Definitely tuning in to see which face you have next (not like I wasn't tuning into your blog everyday already).

  11. I agree with Aubrey!! 100x better than LOVE 21's. I'm so glad you didn't end up ordering that (right?). I love the styling of this outfit. Where is the lace top from? I need a lace top in my life :)

  12. Oh, what a pretty, pretty skirt! Love this outfit, so feminine with the lace and scalloped hems.
    Haha...I love Boo! She is too cute!

  13. cute skirt! and the color is just lovely!

    I have been wanting scalloped skirt or shorts for the longest time, but it's not easy to find a nice piece that's affordable =(

  14. I actually like the fit on the skirt, I think if you ordered a size down the scales won't sit as nicely as they are now. The outfit is just perfection, I love the combo of lace and scalloped edges. AH so feminine.

    UM. So does this mean we can request new masks for your pics? =0P The Boo pic made me crack up! Psht, she wishes she can dress like you. Haha.

  15. i LOVE this scalloped skirt and the fit is really nice. i also really like the lacy top you paired with it!

    cute and little

  16. I love the color of that skirt and I agree with Hannah, it fits you perfectly!! How cute is Boo?!!

  17. Great look and cute faces. I'd love to know where you got your lace top too.

  18. Claud & Cee - the top is from the Stella McCartney for Target collection that was only available in Australia. A fellow petite Megan picked it up for me.

    Callandra - she is impossibly adorable. Monsters Inc. is one of my all time favs.

    Kileen - thanks! I love it too. :)

    Hanna - request away! I'll do whatever you request at this point lol

    Annie - yes, this search was indeed difficult but if you keep looking I am sure one will turn up. And I heard making your own out of old skirts is quite simple, I plan to give it a try this weekend!

  19. Kimmie - I think the M would've worked for both of us! :) Too bad I didn't have the gift of foresight.

    Aubrey - haha she is from Monsters Inc. Aubrey you gotta get your Disney characters straight! :D

    Joey - thank you! I am a huge fan of Boo too!

  20. I LOVE the scalloped detail!! If I had your gams I would so wear that skirt length!!! :)

    I've been trying to find scalloped items myself after Jessy from TDLP posted the spring H&M collection. No luck yet so this may be a DIY moment.

  21. haha I love the monkey. ; ) omg I love the skirt! I've been searching for one like it.. where was this from/how much/what colours? I probably won't get it though... blah. I hate this enabling business..

  22. I've actually made a dress with a scalloped hem and lemme warn you - scallops are a bitch to do. Getting a perfect curve sewn between the skirt and the facing is not easy, involves lots of clipping of seam allowances and a ton of time spent pressing. You can't hem a scallop, it needs to be faced. If you leave it raw it will unravel.

    Although I love the look of scallops I have failed twice in sewing items with them so I am going to pass on this one.

  23. LOL...I chuckled when I saw the pics over your face...cute:)

    And the skirt- ADORABLE!

  24. lol. Elle, you're always shopping... can you help my find a pair hot pink shorts?

  25. *wolf whistle* Your legs look hot!! I think you made the right choice getting an xs...that means more leg! You do not want to hide those!

    Now you have me lusting for scallops! :p
