This is a PDF file for a crochet pattern to complete a fun photography prop for a professional photographer or even an amateur that just wants some fun photos. It would also make a great accessory for a Halloween costume for a baby or little girl. MERMAID TAIL AND HEADBAND PATTERNS SOLD SEPARATELY.
Recently revised to include a photo tutorial and a stitch chart.
Sizes: This pattern will make a Shell Bikini Top that is adjustable for a baby up to child size. The shells can be moved, they are adjustable. Size is approximate but can be adjusted quite easily.
Tip: My suggestion ~ For a more modest look or for extra warmth if it's being used as a costume, wear a nude-colored leotard underneath...it works great! I also stitched the top of the shells together to keep it in place better.
Both my grandmothers taught me how to crochet when I was a child. In the fall of 2010, I got involved with crocheting again and it has quickly become a passion. I love creating patterns!
