Rae and Crescent Skirts: Fresh New Photos, Plus 20% Off!

At our last photo shoot, we took new photos of past patterns to give them a fresh look! The Crescent Skirt and Rae Skirt now have updated images in the online shop.

The Crescent Skirt is one of our earliest pattern designs, and the photos from the time reflect the fact we were in the early stages of our business. We’ve now updated the shop with new images and samples in solid fabrics to show off the design details clearly.

Shown with our popular Renfrew Top pattern, this is View B of the Crescent Skirt. The fabric is a lightweight cotton denim. Choosing something lightweight for this view is best so the gathers fall softly below the yoke seam.

Here’s View A of the Crescent Skirt, the version that’s less gathered. Contrast stitching outlines the seams on the yoke.

You can see that the fuller skirt design works best in a lightweight fabric, while the less full skirt holds its shape in a medium weight denim.


The Rae Skirt is a fairly recent pattern, but we wanted to add fresh new photos this year. Marissa’s styled it into outfits with a fall colour theme.

This is View A of the Rae Skirt, the shorter, less full option. I love how it’s styled here, perfect with the caramel leather accessories!

Here’s the knee-length version, View C of the Rae Skirt pattern.

Love the movement in this photo!

We’ll continue to update a handful of older pattern designs with each new photo shoot. One by one, all of our older patterns will get a fresh new look. By doing only a few styles at a time, we get to work with a different model each shoot so the store represents many different faces.

Now’s the perfect time to try either our Rae Skirt pattern or the Crescent Skirt pattern! For the next week, take 20% off with the code CRESCENTRAE20.

    Lovely updates! And timely for me, since I’m on a Rae sewing binge. I know this wasn’t what you had in mind when you designed it, but it’s perfect for a postpartum transitional wardrobe!

      That’s good to know, something I wouldn’t have thought of!

    I love the shoes. What brand are they?

    • Tasia September 8, 2015 at 10:32 am #

      They’re from a discounter called Winners, I don’t remember the brand! Winners sells out of season merchandise or overstock from designers, so it’s usually not current product and so it would be hard to find them again. They’re cute eh? Hard to find nice-looking flats that photograph well!

    Love the new looks. I like how it looks without a belt. Question what is the fabric in the polka dot one? Where can I purchase the fabric? Thanks.

    • Tasia September 8, 2015 at 10:33 am #

      It’s a polyester woven fabric, it’s from last year so it may be hard to find! It’s from Telio, a Canadian wholesaler, we used it for kits when we sold Rae Skirt kits last year. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!

    Wonderful photos! I always forget that I have a Crescent Skirt in my pattern stash. I may have to whip that up this fall :)

    Wonderful photos, and the styling is perfect! Annette

    Hello! I have a question about the fit of the Crescent skirt. Here you say that it hits at the natural waist, and that’s how it looks in the pictures– and I REALLY love the look! But on instagram, all the crescent skirt pictures are definitely rather low-waisted, a look I’m not personally so keen on. Have people just been sizing up so that it sits lower? If I follow the size chart, where will the waistband of this skirt really hit? I’m seriously tempted to buy this pattern either way, but am wondering how to get the look of your lovely pictures.

      It’s meant to sit on the natural waistline, like in these photos and in the old photos too. It’s also easy to fit it to your waistline as you sew, as there are side seams in the yoke! Simply take it in if you find it a little too loose for your waistline. I also used twill tape in the waistline, so it won’t stretch out. Here’s a tutorial on how to do that: http://sewaholic.net/crescent-sew-along-21-sewing-the-zipper/

        Oops just saw this now…. great! I didn’t realise about the side seams in the yoke. I’m pretty much the opposite of pear shaped, so that makes things really easy! Will also check out that tutorial.

    Like the new pics, but could you position your Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter links elsewhere, they appear right in the middle of the photo, over the skirt so it’s distracting and gets in the way.. I know that they don’t appear if you move the cursor away, but just thought it would be better…. :(. Thx.

    • Tasia September 21, 2015 at 11:51 am #

      I moved them to top left – does that look better to you? (I thought middle would be the easiest to see, but I can see how they’d be distracting if you don’t use them…)
