Welcome!! Let me introduce you to Sansahash's latest pattern, the Harmania dress! (I do enjoy the name...it makes me think of harmonious craziness......like organized chaos!)
Harmania comes with sizes 6 months to 12 years included. Layered pattern pieces and clear grading instructions for a perfect fit!
Harmania comes with several sleeve options:
- Spaghetti strap (or sleeveless)
- Short sleeve
- 3/4 length sleeve
- Long sleeve (as per my sample.)
This pattern has the option of adding godets, which are segment shaped inserts sewn into the skirt. Now, I'm not a novice sewer, but I did find the godets a real challenge with the knit fabric! Like a BIG challenge and to be honest I wasn't happy with my sewing - even with hand sewing the tips of the godets.
Let me say here, this is not a pattern issue, other testers had no issues and the instructions are clear (I personally just had a difficult time! Some find zips a challenge.....apparently it's godets for me!)
|"Come on Mum!" (My little lady doesn't always enjoy photos!)|
Even though I found the godets a challenge, I ADORE the end result and so did my little Miss! It turned an 'A' line shaped dress into a full circle skirt......so yes.....it was worth the pain!
Allow extra time when sewing the godets, minus the godets this is a quick sew....like 20 minutes quick....with the godets, allow at least an extra hour or more! (If you're like me any way!)
Full twirl in action!! My version is made from 4 way stretch cotton jersey, with sequin knit godets. (We love a little sparkle in our house!)
If you are looking for a fun, sporty, fast knit sew, Harmania is the one for you! I can see this pattern sewn up as the most adorable cheerleader or sports dresses! My husband thought this version looked like an ice-skaters costume! (I agree!)
