More Photos of the Crescent Skirt

June 7, 2011

During the second half of April and into May, I sewed along with Tasia at Sewaholic.net. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I all made her just-released Crescent skirt pattern. This post continues the discussion of the completed skirt.

After only capturing a couple of decent photos of my finished Crescent skirt in last week’s photo shoot, I had to try again. I pulled out my camera and tripod before work this morning, taking care to set up in a spot where the camera could focus on auto-timer. This time around I took a crazy number of photos, hoping to get a few shots of the skirt in action. Here are a few that captured the fit and drape of the skirt. I really wanted to show just how much life this skirt has from the satin organza fashion fabric!

I love the pockets. They blend in perfectly with the gathering. I bet I could hide quite a few things in them, and no one would be the wiser. And, now that I’ve seen how to construct the pockets in this pattern, I think I could draft similar pockets in almost any skirt with side seams.

Another shot from the front, and one final shot from the back.

Mena from the Sew Weekly just posted a hint as to next week’s challenge that included twenty black and white prints. It’s been a while since I was able to enter something into one of her challenges, so I’ll be crossing my fingers that my black and white skirt meets the criteria.

    This is really beautiful, you would think that print would overwhelm a shorter skirt, but it looks fabulous:)

      Thanks! I noticed that you like to keep your skirts longer. I thought about making this a just-below-knee-length skirt, but the organza just seemed so fun and flirty – like it really wanted to be a shorter skirt. I’m still new to sewing, so I never even considered what the print would want to be! I’m glad to hear that you think it works. That means a lot!
