Free Mermaid skirt

Another BOO! Design pattern, this time a free pattern! Our eldest is liking skirts more and more, especially special ones. When I saw the free mermaid skirt from BOO! Designs, I knew our girl would love it. Our girl loves high low skirts and it is definitely an eye-catcher. She has been wearing her mermaid skirt non-stop ever since. Her holiday was filled with BOO! Design patterns, this bikini and this skirt.

The mermaid skirt is a really quick sew. You can choose to cut it as one piece or with two pieces with directional fabric. Our girl saw scales in this fabric, perfectly matching the mermaid theme of the skirt, so I choose to cut two pieces to keep the direction of the scales. After sewing the two skirt pieces together I had to add the waistband and I was done. I didn’t hem the skirt as it wasn’t necessary with this fabric and I do not really like hemming circle skirts.

There is even a pattern piece included to add the skirt to a dress (the skirt is longer in this case). The mermaid skirt can mix and match with other dress patterns from BOO! Designs. I will definitely give that a try! What a great free pattern!

I choose a longer front size than back size because I like longer skirts and so that she would not outgrow it too soon. I just blended the size and I am happy with the results.
