DIY MERMAID OUTFIT INSPIRED BY PRABAL GURUNG
HI DARLINGS! Today is all about having fun, lol. I saw this great look by PRABAL GURUNG’s Spring RTW 2019 show and I wanted to make my version of the sheer skirt and bodysuit. It was a lot of fun to make and I don’t know that I would actually wear it much but I love it! I need a sexy date night for this.
I am going to post a BEHIND THE SEAMS look on my IGTV today but here are the details on what I used. For the skirt, I used an older MCCALL 5431 (out of print) skirt pattern and modified it to add princess seams. I drafted a new waistband and did two rows of drawstrings and three rows of 1/4″ elastic. I used a mix of chiffon and satin for the skirt and for the bodysuit I used a rib knit and SIMPLICITY 8513.
I lovingly call this my little mermaid outfit, lol and if Ariel grew up and was going out on the town this is what she would wear, ha!
