Crescent Skirt Envelope Back, By Request

Hey everyone! It’s been an exciting, fun, and super busy week so far. Phase two of school has been awesome to start, I’m really enjoying it! The daily seminars have been packed full of information. I’m learning lots and really excited to start making even more things happen!

I wanted to thank you guys for an awesome pre-sale on the Crescent Skirt. We beat the numbers from the Pendrell Pre-Sale, with over twice the number of patterns sold! And I’m excited to announce that the first round of Crescent Skirt Patterns are on their way to you right now. (Yay, a fun reason to check the mail!) I swear, I have never licked so many envelopes in one day before!

I was going to wait on the metric conversion PDF files to be done before posting them to the site, but I know that some of you want to get out there and buy fabric for the Sew-Along! So to get you started, here is the Envelope Back in PDF for your reference.

Several Sew-Along-related questions that came up on Monday, which I plan to answer this week!

Also, plenty of comments and ideas in response to yesterday’s post about fabric scraps. I’d love to summarize the suggestions so whenever you find yourself facing a scary overload of scraps, you know where to turn. (The Sewtionary, of course!)

I wanted to thank you for your understanding as well! While I’m in school, I’ll be just a teeny bit behind on things. Don’t worry! Things will be back to normal by the time the Sew-Along starts. (Maybe even better than normal? Stick around to find out more!)

Have a great day and happy sewing!

    Great! If version B only requires 1 yard 3/4, that means I’ll be able to squeeze both the skirt and my summer dress project on the same poppy cotton voile! Perfect : not being a Pear girl myself, I wasn’t interested by the Pendrell blouse (so maybe that’s why the ales are higher : it appeals to different body types!), but the Crescent skirt does not only match my measurements perfectly, it also looks a lot like my favorite ready-to-wear skirt, and I’d love to make a replica of this one for fall and winter.

    Any idea on wether you will give instructions regarding lining? I already lined a pleated skirt (McCall’s 5803) because I really had to, but I don’t feel any wiser on the subject!

    Thanks for this! Congrats on the sales. Hopefully many will be joining in the Sew Along. I love to see the variations.
    Super excited!

    Moisten a sponge to use for the envelopes, it’ll save your tongue. :-) Congrats on the sales of this skirt pattern! You’ve earned it, the patterns are fabulous. :-)

    Thanks for putting finished measurements on the envelope! I’d prefer the skirt to sit slightly below my actual waist, so the finished measurements tell me that I’ll be happier if go up a size. It’s nice not to have to guess.

    I’m excited about the Crescent Skirt (especially since I just got around to finally posting my finished Pendrell!) I think another sew-a-long is a great idea too – now I just have to decide between View A and B!

    I am hoping to have a second Pendrell finished before this sew-along, but I am already planning this one! Thanks for all the hard work.

    Congrats on the presales, that is fantastic, hope you are proud, this little business will be taking over the big four in no time!

    Did I miss out on how to preorder the pattern? I don’t see it in your shop.

    Unfortunately, Catholic Bibliophagist the pre-sale was for those who were signed up to the mailing list and ended on Tuesday. The two benefits that people got from the pre-sale are: free shipping (no matter what part of world you are from!) and getting the pattern earlier than others. Up to Tasia to see if she can remedy the situation for you! I am just a reader of the blog…

    Yay! Looking forward to receiving mine. Thanks to Me Made March, I’ve rediscovered my skirt wearing mojo recently and I’ve been looking for a pattern like this since last year!!
    The Pendrell just would not have suited me but I’m convinced this skirt will become a wardrobe staple for me. I’ve read such good things about how very useable your patterns are. Really excited for the sewalong.

    I’m also looking forward to the sewalong – I participated in Gertie’s Crepe sewalong and it was fun. I’ve seen a lot of people make lovely Pendrells, but like others, have felt that the shape wouldn’t suit me, so I think the Crescent should be more for me, and other broad-shoulders like me!

    @Caro: Ah! I’m a relatively new reader of this blog and did not know about the mailing list. Well, I guess I can wait until the pattern is in the shop.
