I was so excited to see that Tasia at Sewaholic Patterns has released her newest pattern, the Crescent Skirt.
I debated whether or not to buy/make this pattern. On one hand, I love the gathers and the the slash pockets. (Pockets in dresses and skirts are my absolute favourite design detail.) On the other hand, the v-shaped yoke doesn't really sing to me, personally. However, after a little bit of thought I realized that changing the v-shape to a gentle curve won't be the hardest alternation in the world, so I went for it.
Actually, who am I kidding? It was definitely the announcement of the sew-along that sealed the deal!
I'm guessing from the size chart that I'll also have to grade the yoke from an 8 at the hips to a 10 at the waist, seeing as I'm not a pear, but that shouldn't be prohibitively challenging either. Definitely starting off with View B.
I'm excited to receive this pattern in the mail. Anyone else sewing along?
