Mermaid Cover-Up

I'm not sure I can wait any longer to share this one!

It's not just a Swim Cover-Up...

It's ALSO a Mermaid Tail!

Of course, both of my girls wanted one.
Here is Charlotte's...


I am thrilled with how these turned out.  And my girls both love them.  Tatum has actually worn hers to bed on several occasions because she refuses to wear anything else.

I got the FABULOUS idea from Barbie... 
Barbie In a Mermaid Tale Merliah Doll
Who else?!  And why should Barbie be the only one to wear cool things like this?

Ok.  This definitely requires me to put together a detailed tutorial.
And I KNOW you are going to want to make one for the special little girls in your life.

Hold tight!
I hope to get a tutorial put together soon!


  1. Adorable, I would love to see a tutorial.

  2. Very cute. Looks like the girls had a great time taking the pics.

  3. AAAAHHH! How inspired! I would *also* love to see a little tutorial on this, I have a little girl myself who would be the hit of the pool party with something like this. SO, SO cute!!

    I'm hosting my *first ever* link party tomorrow - it opens tonight at 5:00 EDT in a couple hours. I'd love for you to come by and link this awesome accessory up. :)
