So, the Steampunk Mermaid is progressing well with the “tail” skirt pretty much done aside from some tidying up of threads. The pannier “fins” are also done, although I may add some additional structural support once the rest of the outfit is complete. The jewellery is all done, and I have the patterns in place for the top and harness. I also have an idea in place for some armlets or similar, though I may make bracers instead if I can find a nice pattern.
In Boyes I found a gorgeous purple satin and matching organza so, sticking with The Little Mermaid as my primary inspiration, I bought some!
