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 is an adorable and easy pattern that makes up quickly. I loved the fact you can use knits or wovens: I chose to make it in sparkly performance fabric. Doll Tag Clothing patterns never disappoint; they are always very clear and easily followed. I have several and live them all. So happy to have a pattern this cute in the animator doll size.
Nice to have this pattern made to fit animators. The pattern is easy to understand with good pictures to help and the finished pattern looks very nice.
