New Made for Mermaids Lea!

The Made for Mermaids team has been busy cooking up your new favorite pattern, and I was lucky enough to test the girls version.

Introducing the Lea Dolman!


Lea is a super easy sew available in sizes 1/2 through 14 and offers options for a romper, dress, and tunic. It’s a dolman style, which means the sleeve is part of the body (woot woot…no sleeves to set in!) The pattern is designed for knits, although a woven can be used for the dress or tunic skirt.


Lea has a boatneck with a modest scoop in the back for easy on and off. The neckline is a simple hem, and the sleeves can be finished with a hem or cuff. And the pièce de résistance?


Yup…that’s right…POCKETS!! I love when a pattern offers a pocket option!


There’s also a Mama Lea, with the same options. Think of all the mama and me possibilities! Both patterns will be on sale individually for $7 each through 8/27, and a discounted bundle will also be available for a short time!

    I think this is so cute, but my daughter has “issues” with elastic waist dresses. Great job on this, Genie!

      That’s a shame, because this is so easy and comfy! I wonder if a really soft rib knit and a not-quite-snug elastic would help your daughter? Thank you 🙂
