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 :)

  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.

  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?

    ReplyDelete
  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
