Crescent Sew-Along #8: Grading It Up

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Today’s Sew-Along step is courtesy of the lovely Patty in Minnesota, who blogs at The Snug Bug!

Patty’s put together a very detailed explanation of how she graded up the Crescent Skirt. In the case that your measurements are not on the size chart, and you’d like to scale up the skirt, this is the post for you!

She shows how and where to add to the pattern pieces, and even shows her fabric cutting layout – as once the pieces are adjusted, you need to get creative with laying out the pattern pieces on the fabric.

Click here to check out Patty’s post.

I’ll be back with Fitting the Muslin shortly!

Just catching up? Here are links to the previous Sew-Along posts:

    I did catch Patty’s post late last night. I was so tired after all the Easter Holiday work that I could not sleep. Not one to waste a sleepless night, I did a lot of blog catch up. I am sure this post will be very helpful. Patty sure seemed like she had fun. By the way, I saw a Pendrell in church yesterday. Yes, in an off white slubbed knit fabric, pleated sleeve version. At closing she got away before I could question her. I’ll keep alert for her.

    @Corinne: A Pendrell sighting in real life – that’s so cool! I know a lot of people will have already seen Patty’s post, but just in case I wanted to post a link.
    Hope you had a great Easter weekend! :)

    Hi Tasia,

    Is there a flickr group for the skirt sew along? I’d love to see everyone’s fabrics etc. Patty’s version is gorgeous and inspiring!

    And… are people still adding to the Pendrell group? Maybe we could have some easy links (Or you could point them out to my blind eyes!) so we could continue to be inspired. :)

    @Cat: Hi! Yes, the Flickr Group is the same as last time, so feel free to upload to the group!
    Here’s the link again:
    I’ll mention these links in a Checking In post later this week – good idea! And I have seen a few gorgeous Pendrells around the world in the last few weeks, so it’s about time for another round-up post. You’re right, it’s so inspiring to see all of the variations!

    Thanks Tasia!

    I made a bookmark so I never have to ask you again. :)
