A Mermaid Tale for Disney Animator Dolls

Sew a Mermaid costume for your Disney Animator doll! The pattern includes two different options for finishing off the waistline of the tail, plain or with panniers. The panniers can be done in fabric or sheer fabric like organza. So whether you create a princess mermaid or a “Merboy” there is an option for you!
The tail fin lies forward and has batting in the top for shape but only fabric under the doll's feet so that she can easily stand. The Animator doll legs spread out when she sits so she cannot sit with her Mermaid tail on.
Included is a rounded and lined bikini top. The back of the top is completed with covered elastic for easy dressing.
The pattern is designed for use with woven fabric but stretch fabric can also be used. Play with color and texture for different effects!
This PDF pattern is designed to fit Disney® Animator’s Collection Doll and It’s a Small World Doll.  Click here to view the 18" doll version of this pattern, also available on Pixie Faire.
