Quick Sew: 30 Minute Mermaid Tail Skirt


Here’s a mermaid tail sewing project perfect for little girls who like to play dress up. These skirts are made using a stretchy jersey material, so they can still move around freely.

I know this is meant for kids, but I definitely know some adults who’d jump in on the chance to make this awesome skirt themselves.


This fabulous design was created by Stef at The Girl Inspired. She claims this can be whipped up in about half an hour which makes it an even more likely to get finished, especially if you do have little ones to look after.

So shake a tail feather and hop to it! The full tutorial and pattern can be found here.
