The Pregnant Mermaid


My cousin is/was pregnant with her second baby and she asked me to design & create her maternity shoot outfit, so I said okay why not.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into playing around with allllllll that tulle!!!!  
Tulle will have you sweatin and sommore!!!!!!! I gathered each row by hand not by machine!!!  I need to make myself one in black just because I can!!!!
#TulleIsNoJoke LOL
