My daughter loves the fact that I dressed
her like a mermaid when she was 9 months...
Ever since then she's wanted mermaid costumes...
And it's been 3 years since and she still wants
a mermaid costume!
I found an old formal dress at a yard sale for $1.
The price was right, so I dared try again...
I don't have a before pic...but it's not
a stretch of the imagination...
I cut the top bodice off the skirt.
I took out the padding...and tried to
take in the front chest region...
She still looks a little busty, and secretly she probably likes it!
I sewed the skirt and did an elastic casing...we still rolled
the elastic a couple times because it was trippy long.
She wore it grocery shopping with me.
A little girl sitting a cart, said "mom, she's a mermaid!"
It was just what we wanted to hear!
It doubles as a Jasmine costume dress up too!
