The Crescent Skirt is a gathered skirt with a fitted yoke. Your choice of a slightly gathered skirt, a fuller gathered skirt or a longer, knee-length skirt. Optional trim or contrast topstitching highlights the fitted waistband. This skirt is designed with a pear-shaped figure in mind. The fitted yoke waistband highlights a narrow waistline, gathers at the hip create a flattering silhouette. Slash pockets are easy to sew, and anything you put in the pockets is disguised by the gathering. Best suited for light or medium weight woven fabrics such as cotton lawn, linen or lightweight denim.
