For a Mermaid it's all about the tail!

My granddaughter Makayla sent me a picture of a Mermaid costume she wanted. She did not want it to look like a Disney Mermaid. I used 8 different layers of various tulle, glittered tissue faile and metallic webbed fabric for the tail in various colors of greens, golds and pearl. It was difficut for me to snap a picture that captured the beautiful colors in the tail. I tried outside in natural light, inside in filtered light...you just couldn't see it. Then as it was hanging in the door jam of my craft room the light hit it just right!


  1. That's a lot of fabric Linda! You did an awesome job and I hope your granddaughter enjoys her costume!

  2. OMG!!! It's awesome! I wish I had a Grandma like you!! She will love it :) Great job!!

  3. this is super cute she will love it. I have your button on my sidebar and would love if you would add mine to yours. hugs
