#40 Mermaid Tale - 18 inch Dolls

Sew a Mermaid costume for your 18" 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. Enough room is in the fin for the doll's feet, so the doll can also sit with her tail on.
Included is a rounded and lined bikini top. The back of the top is completed with covered elastic for easy dressing.
The PDF pattern is designed for use with woven fabric but stretch fabric can also be used. Play with color and texture for different effects!
