This is such a fun and cute pattern. I don't sew for Barbies a lot any more but I just couldn't resist. It is a super quick and easy sew. There were several of us who tested this and not one of them were the same. So many fabric choices and it fits several size Barbies too. The day after I finished mine my great granddaughter stopped by. She said I don't have one of those dollies. Can I have it? lol Needless to say she went home with it. I am waiting on her to ask me to make her another mermaid! Get the pattern and have some fun!
This little mermaid ensemble is super cute and easy to make. It can be made out of knit or woven. I made it out of lycra swim/dance fabric. I usually don't enjoy making barbie clothes because if how tiny the pieces are but this was super fun. The only tricky thing was stitching detail lines on the tail but there are ideas and suggestions of how to do it that make it easy to do.
