Mermaid Monday #5: Blue Seafoam Gown with Silver and Seaglass Girdle

Click for larger version; click for the list of dolls.

I’m back, and hopefully can get back to doing a dress a day. I was doing so well, too…

All my mermaid-y things are bound to have elements of Puget Sound for a while, since I went to visit my parents in Seattle and we spent a week at the beach. This gown is inspired by the way the waves break at high tide — the shawl and lace are meant to look like seafoam. Also, the silver girdle is set with pieces of seaglass. I count this as Mermaid Monday, because I figure they have to leave sometimes. (Brian thought this looked like the sort of thing one might wear to a wedding on the land.)

I haven’t done one since Cloud, so it’s not the best, but I’ll get back in the swing of things soon enough, I’m sure! (Cloud is turning out to be unexpectedly popular… I think I may have to redo his skirt, it’s too flat and bugs me to no end.)

  1. Lovely! It’s nice to see your work again! I’ll definately be printing this one, but not for a while, because at the moment I’m on vacation… no printer here! :)

  2. All my friends love this one. It’s a gorgeous gown to leave the sea in. It makes you stand out and not because you have fins either. : )
