My dd needs a costume for a birthday party next saturday she has to be a mermaid and she wants me to make the costume. i have limited sewing skills I sewed a skirt once. LOL The costume she likes is this one http://www.amazon.com/Pretend-Childs-Deluxe-Mermaid-Costume/dp/B000UUUDT8%3FSubscriptionId%3D19BAZMZQFZJ6G2QYGCG2%26tag%3Dsquid1039644-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB000UUUDT8
Any thoughts on how to make this? I can make a basic long skirt and cut the front but how do I make the back longer, the picture looks like its flared and folded in the back. Would I need to figure out how to add gussets or darts in the back? What about the bodice? I could get away with a leotard we embellish if the bodice would be too hard to make a pattern for. All ideas, thoughts, directions would be helpful.
