The sweetest little mermaids

I bought some very sweet mermaid fabric last year, weeeelllll I decided to use it this year instead. I think fabric is like wine it gets better over time. Heeheee “Better late then never” is the old saying. (At least I didn’t decide to save it until my littles’ have littles’.)Anyhow I wanted the girls to have one last summer outfit before we moved into the fall and I moved into working 7/12. I shouldn’t complain about work, considering I was off all summer. What a wonderful summer it has been, the weather has been just gorgeous and I got to spend a great deal of time with the littles’.

Dresses, sunsuits and even her swimsuit, she has them on. When I get old and don’t care what I look like, I’m going to wear rainboots and rompers.

The pattern was from NEWLOOK 6134. This was the first time that I have used this brand and the instructions were very easy to follow. Each one of the outfits took about an hour to make. I always like to read a new pattern a couple of times to get the gist of it before I start to sew. velly in her mermaid dressMove over Jennifer Aniston you have just met your new competition, the lovely and talented Giavella.

Well I have to go but I hope you get inspired to make a couple of last-minute sunsuits or buy some fabric to hoard for next summer.
