Barbie's pink mermaid tail 2015 by Speattle
Barbie mermaid tail
My 4 year old granddaughter called me the other day to let me know that her Barbie was in need of a pink mermaid tail for swimming in their pool. I had made my granddaughter and her sister pink swimsuits earlier this spring, and have a lot of leftover fabric.
This afternoon I cut out and sewed up the tail. It is basically a tube with a tail shape on the end. It slides up over Barbie's feet and Barbie, being Barbie, has plenty of anatomy in which to keep the tube from having a wardrobe malfunction at the pool.
This is a 15 minute project. I put it in the post when I was done and in a few days I expect I will get a call, and probably a photo of Barbie wearing her tail emailed to me.
