I had a bit of a bad mommy slip this week. I completely forgot that Emily had a Daisy Girls Scouts event that they were supposed to come to dressed as their favorite princess. Now a few years ago I made some princess dresses but sadly most of those do not fit anymore. Add to that Emily's favorite princess is Ariel and we did not have that dress. I figured all of this out Friday morning. The event was Saturday morning. Thankfully I did have a tutorial for a mermaid tail skirt.
tutorial from Girl Inspired to make the skirt. I bought some craze shiny dance wear fabric that was on sale. It was an absolute bear to sew and my machine threw a fit. I have a good machine and usually it doesn't complain but it hated this stuff.
