Pink Mermaid

video Pink Mermaid
I made this costume for a little Barbie video that I made. It was super easy and didn't take too long. I would recommend using a stretchy material and sewing it closed (instead of using velcro) if you plan on wearing it out.

Everything was hand stitched (I don't have a sewing machine) and the materials were very cheap...most from ebay or the fabric store.

Good luck! I love mermaids and it was really fun to be one...and even funnier to see everyone's reactions at the beach ;)

For some reason, I can't see the video or a link to it.

Sorry I didn't embed it right the first time...it's on there now
Oh ok :-) NIce, doesn't look like it is easy to walk in though.

No the velcro was a bad idea - it kept ripping off, esp when it got wet. It worked fine for pictures and video though. I would strongly suggest a stretchy fabric and just sew it together - would be much more walk-friendly lol.
Could you use the velcro lightly stitched until is was finished and fitted and then "finish" it by removing and sewing permanent like?
