There are two ways I'm familiar with, and I'm not sure which of these Penlowe is referring to (I -think- she means the latter):
- The first is a stitch that, every so often, runs over the edge of the fabric, which minutely pulls the fabric in at that point to create a scalloped look.
- The second is a form of satin stitch that looks like a crescent moon shape, and when run on repeat it creates this satin-stitched scallop motif. You'd back the fabric up along your intended stitch lines with a stabilizer, sew it out, remove the excess stabilizer, and then trim off the excess fabric as close to the satin-stitching as you can.
