Mermaid Mannequin 1:16 Scale Cloth Doll

An original pattern by Laurie Wagner © 2014

Sew an elegant mermaid 4.5” (11.5 cm) tall with flexible wire armature and needle sculpted details. This little posable doll is an ideal basic body for finishing in many different ways. Basic machine and hand sewing skills are required. Pattern is full size.

Recommended fabrics: Use a fine knit fabric with moderate stretch, about 40% across and 20% lengthwise to achieve the shaping as shown. Using other fabrics will make the doll thicker or thinner than the original design.
