Product Description

The Marvelous Mermaid and Fabulous Fishtail Skirt Pattern. This pattern includes directions for fully customizing it to a variety of sizes from 2 to 22 and beyond. The Mermaid Skirt is one of the hottest looks in belly dance attire today. Variations on the slim fitting yet flared skirt, are being used by costume designers from Egypt to San Francisco, Britain to Australia , for their most innovative designs. Madame X's pattern offers to stylish variants of this style for the do-it-yourself costumer to make at home. This pattern is very easy to construct, with only a few key pieces, so even the novice sewer can produce exceptional results. The Marvelous Mermaid skirt fits tightly through the hips and thighs, flaring at the knee to create fullness at the ankle that swirls during spins. It's the perfect combination of grace and flow at the hem, sexy slink through the thighs, with added modesty, because during quick turns, this skirt doesn't fly sky high. The Fabulous Fishtail skirt has a full train at the back that adds more fullness through the leg and dramatically increases the hem, creating more interest in the back. The back panel can be made in coordinating fabrics for added drama, or made longer for a quazi-Victorian bustle effect. This is a really dramatic skirt style! This pattern includes directions for fully customizing it to a variety of sizes from 2 to 22 and beyond. It is professionally printed on tissue paper. The top of the skirt is finished with a self-casing. Pattern is sized with stretch fabrics in mind, so look for knit fabrics, and for the ultimate in slink, try one with a 4-way stretch.

This turned out very well. I am an average seamstress. This is not hard at all, just the first time you must adjust the pattern to your measurements. The instructions for this are clear and simple, just use a little common sense too and think through the adjusting of the pattern. I only had to tweak it a little. I made both the regular mermaid and the fishtail. I like the regular mermaid the best and it was the easiest. Both look very pretty and professional, just like the ones online at triple the cost. I get many compliments each time I wear them for performances at haflas and shows.

I have been sewing a long time and appreciate good instructions. This pattern appears to be created by someone who knows how to sew. Cutting it out was simple and sewing was easy. For my first skirt, I used stretchy swimsuit fabric so no unraveling edges. I will try adjusting this pattern with other types of fabrics plus in combination of stretchy (for the main parts) and woven (for the gores and fish tail). This style of skirt looks beautiful on the dancer and I look forward to wearing it with my other performance costume parts.
