Monochrome Floral Crescent Skirt

Added Jan 22, 2012

Leicester, Unite...






I made this Crescent skirt last year in April/May during the Sewaholic sewalong, but somehow never got around to photographing it. I think it’s my most often worn me-made item, I love it! I still wear it in the depths of winter with some thermal tights.

Material Notes

Black and white floral cotton lawn, interfacing.




Garment Type

    I love this skirt, i actually thought it was wool for a second, until I read the ‘floral’ part ;). To be honest, looking at the Sewaholic pattern/pictures I would have never bought it, it just seems to flowy, not flattering for peer-shapes, but seeing your version I will need to reconsider the pattern :). I just love this skirt so much!! Well done!

      Thanks so much! I have to admit, I started doubting this would look good on me halfway through making it, but since then I probably wear it on a weekly basis!

      Thanks! Yeah, the pattern is the Sewaholic Crescent Skirt. Here’s the pattern store:

      Best bit! If you go onto the Sewaholic blog, she’s written a ton of how-to posts for the sewalong, so it’s super easy to make!
