4043 Child, Girl & Misses Mermaid Costumes »
InstructionsI made the girls size 12. I dyed some cotton crinkle fabric to match a velour/knit fabric with an embossed scales pattern, given to me in a box of free fabric. I used the pattern pieces and basic construction directions, making alterations as needed to use materials from my stash, including velcro closure on the skirt, rather than zipper.
A very straight forward, quick finish costume.
