Sewing Pojects



Making Stuff Again
 
This time the theme was a Pirate and a Mermaid Outfit. 


I wanted them to be "themed" outfits that could possibly really be wearable 
but not just be costumes. 

I put some of these ideas on Facebook... 
but here are my "Inspirations" along with the final outfits.

THE MERMAID DRESS
An evening gown for the eccentric girl

Perhaps, dressing up on a Cruise?  Or, attending a beach wedding? 

Here we go... 



1. THE Purchase

 2. THE Inspiration
I love this Dress... (but wanted to use the pleats full of SeaDebris!)

Love the colors, the tulle and the beadwork

3. THE Putting it Together

 4. THE Finished Dress
