Once again Project Run & Play has inspired and enticed me to create something special.....and blog again! I really love this contest of selected 'sewists' and the sew-along contest. It is wonderful to see all the unique and special garments that everyone sews for their loved ones.
This first theme this season (Season 13) is "It's All About That Place". I would love to travel to Greece again. I spent a few days in Athens about 50 years ago and loved it. I loved the cuisine, the vistas of ocean, the smell off the water and its beautiful colors, the brilliant lighting, and the lovely people.
The closest I can get to Greece now is the beautiful city of Tarpon Springs here in Pinellas County, Florida. It has one of the largest Greek populations in the United States.

The Greek Mermaid Dress
|I used the Portabellopixie 'Claire' pattern: the Petal Knot Dress.|
I did make Chloe a blouse to wear under the dress but it was too warm to wear it on the day that we did the photo shoot. It also caused me to turn it into another outfit for Chloe... so you will need to click HERE for Part 2 of A Greek Mermaid.
|Note the gold Greek Key design on the white ribbon!|
|Chloe's mommy made the star fish hair ties with real star fish!|
|Chloe...being a mermaid.|
You can tell that Chloe loved this dress, can't you? She just makes me smile!
She is beautiful, isn't she? What a pleasure to sew for, too!
I hope that you enjoyed Part 1 of A Greek Mermaid and that you will check out what the other sew-along contestants have created HERE.
