My Own Little Mermaid

I'm not to the point where I think this is perfected enough to share the pattern (the sizing is a bit weird, for one thing), but I thought I'd post some pictures of the progress I've made on my Mermaid Tail project. It's going to be Claire's trick or treat outfit.

As you can see it's a little bit loose on her. I'm thinking that, rather than remake the whole piece, I'm going to add on a "belt" like band at the top that tightens it up because I do want the body of the piece to allow her legs as much movement as possible. There is even a slit up the back so that her legs can completely pop out of the outfit, allowing for a diaper change or just a break if she wants to kick (or crawl. I expect she will be crawling by Halloween). I don't want to do this part just yet because she's probably also going to grow a bit over the next few months. 

Here she is again. She didn't seem to mind wearing it which is a good sign.


The tail on it's own. The pattern is (like all my patterns) really simple. Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions or questions.
