Some photos of my daughters mermaid costume, despite the fact that I REALLY wanted her to be a peacock. I could have just bought a mermaid costume but she wanted a posh mermaid costume a hand made one Smiley Once they turn four they have their own opinions. Who knew?

Some of the photos are still showing up sideways after I turned them....hmmm. Sorry about that, they show up correctly in the edit screen, I save them and grab the code and yet they are turned any suggestions?

The outfit consists of: One green silky skirt with a tail, I added tulle, sequins, and ribbon in the opening of the tail for some added pizazz. One purple shirt slightly molding with seaming and green rick rack at the top. One blue velvet and sequin shrug. A sparkly green sequin belt. A stretchy shiny trim necklace. One light blue hair piece with tulle, ribbon, and sparkly coral looking things.

I made it all, well not the tights and as always no pattern.

Thanks to fellow crafster Tspoonmommy for the photos Smiley

She's something else. I saw her flower girl pics too. Very cute. It looks a bit like your mermaid has peacock colors.   Smiley It's nice she wants you to make her outfits.

I rotate my pics before I upload them. Save them with a diff name so as not to alter the quality in case I want to print it at some point.
