Have you even been holding a quilt or have it draped across your lap and think hmmm…this would be a pretty dress!
I certainly have. So, today I’m going to do act on that thought…
Let me introduce you to Harmony; She’s your new best friend.
Best friends come in all shapes and sizes, and Harmony is no different! With a wide array of sizes for all body types, this skirt is sure to show off your new favorite jelly roll in whatever style you love.
I created this pattern with the intention of using it with gradients, but it looks great in all sorts of unexpected combinations! Make sure you check out the pattern tester versions at the bottom of this post to see what I’m talking about!
I also want to note that many of these pictures were taken before the pattern was finalized, so while the design is essentially the same, I’ve revised the waistband so that it isn’t so bunchy and lays nice and flat against your tummy!
If you’re the kind of girl that likes to shove her hands in her pockets no matter what you’re wearing, then you’ll want to stay tuned! Timeless Treasures will have a special feature on this pattern in a few weeks and will show you how to hack the Harmony Skirt! Adding pockets is a quick and easy hack that is oh-so-worth-it…because really, who doesn’t get excited when they realize their skirt has pockets!?
Now, I know you’re wondering where this delicious fabric came from…
I saw this collection by Briar Hill Designs (for RJR Fabrics) called Bequest and knew it would be perfect for my skirt! I’m always inspired by their Instagram feed, but this collection got me! My absolute favorite print is at the top right of the picture above, it’s white with blue flowers…so dreamy!
I love a big bow on my skirts, but I know they aren’t for everyone! The pattern is designed so that you can easily add or remove it at any time.
I originally designed this as a maxi length skirt, but I got some requests for a knee length skirt- I love it both ways, but am proud to have both maxi and knee length as a part of my pattern!
So, the only question remains…what fabric collection came to mind when you saw this pattern!?
Harmony is perfect for 2.5″ strip packs (there’s so many names, but they are most popularly known as Jelly Rolls). The number of strips needed varies based on your size and the length you choose, and the number needed may surprise you! Make sure you check out the pattern before you order your fabric or head out to your favorite quilt shop!
