I made this purple Mermaid costume for Halloween 4 years ago. It’s mostly hand sewn as my machine wouldn’t sew through the plastic disks on the tail. This is the very first project I ever finished (and then I lost interest in sewing for another year!). It was great fun to wear. It took 20 hours to make. This costume is my own design, I did not use any pattern for this.
American knit, lame, elastic, purple thread, shells from an old chain, ribbons, pearls and a flower lei from Hawaii.
