We show that any simply connected rectifiable domain Ω can be decomposed into Lipschitz crescents using only crosscuts of the domain and using total length bounded by a multiple of the length of ∂Ω. In particular, this gives a new proof of a theorem of Peter Jones that such a domain can be decomposed into Lipschitz domains.
