Crescent Sew-Along #3: all done!

Finally! I've finished my Crescent Skirt and thanks to Tasia's brilliant tutorial, it's the neatest garment I've ever made on the inside. Whoop! Following really helpful feedback from you lovely people, I made the hem knee length and I lowered the waistband a little – the latter has annoyingly made the skirt a touch too big on the waist so if there's a next time I may have to make some tweaks or cut a size down.

It's definitely not the most flattering shape on me, but I love the fabric print and I think I can make it work...do you?


Giving it a bit of a swishing swivel.



I also did some subtle topstitching in red, suggested to me by the lovely Portia of Miss P.


And I just couldn't resist a photo showing off the neat inside!

  10. Cute :) Lovely fabric too.
    It looks like it sits nicely at the back. The problem I always have with skirts is that they stick out over my big sticky-out bum so anything pleated makes it look like I'm wearing a bustle!

  11. Thank you all very much! Sadly, I can't take any credit for the neatness of the inside, it's all down to Tasia's genius construction and tuition ;o)

    Dibs, having met you, I think this skirt would definitely suit you cause you've got a teeny tiny waist...go for it I say!

  16. That is gorgeous! I love the print and the top stitching looks fantastic. I love it when a garment is nice on the inside. I have only just started taking the time with my garments to do this and I am so much happier when I do. It makes the finished product seem so much more professional.

  17. I'd almost suggest you could wear that inside out apart from the pockets hanging out lol; it's lovely. I particularly like the red stitching. (Oh, and I think it looks great on you by the way)

  24. I don't know what you're talking about that it's "not the most flattering shape on you"!! It is SUPER flattering. I love it on you.

    Also, I took note that your skirt was just as beautiful on the inside as on the outside -- the mark of a conscientious sewist. Me likey.
