The Mermaid in Winter


    I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up.  It was really the only thing that interested me for years and years, and I spent a lot of time making my landlocked mid-western country bedroom look like a beach house getaway.  Well, needless to say, magically being turned into a mythical being didn't exactly pan out for me, but deep down, I'll always be a mermaid at heart. 
    It follows then that I would love this Mermaid fabric by Heather Mendocino.  I was so crazy about  it that I bought what little I could find in pink and then went completely overboard in blue.  The good news is that while I didn't feel like making a whole dress out of the blue, I did make this fabulous full skirt (no pattern) and have enough left over to make airy summer skirts for each of my girls. 
    In the meantime, I don't have to wait for summer to wear this skirt.  I chose autumn-y orange, cream, and tan hues to accompany the cool blue of this skirt and I think it instantly turns it to something seasonally appropriate.  I'm done with mermaid for a while, mostly because I haven't found anything that I like as much as this fabric, but if I do, the mermaid will return, hopefully
