This cake is the reason she wanted a mermaid party in the first place. She wanted a barbie wrapped in a fruit roll up to create the mermaid tail.
For the mermaid shirt I used a basic peasant pattern and added a ribbon across the front and then sewed ribbons in the seams for a tie. I also added a ruffle from the ruffle material at the cuff. The whole outfit turned out supper cute and my daughter loved it.
