The Crescent Skirt from Sewaholic

After the great success of the Pendrell Blouse, the first pattern from Sewaholic, we are now really excited to have in stock the second pattern, the new Crescent Skirt.

The Crescent skirt is a great gathered skirt with a fitted yoke. Your choice of a slightly gathered skirt, a fuller gathered skirt or a longer, knee-length skirt. Optional trim or contrast topstitching highlights the fitted waistband. Or, keep it simple with the seamline details only. A great addition to your wardrobe.
Apart from the fact that this skirt is awesome, do you know the most exciting thing?  Tasia is running a sew-along on her blog for the Crescent skirt to help you through the pattern.

Guidance topics to expect from Tasia in this Sew-Along:
  • Recommended Fabrics
  • Links to Pre-washing, Cutting, and Measuring
  • Fitting Tips
  • Sewing Steps
  • Zipper Insertion
  • Slip Tutorial
  • Sharing your Finished Skirts
  • And most valuably, help and instruction from Tasia herself.
Oh, and it has pockets... yes, pockets... perfect.
