In honor of the Renaissance Faire that’s coming to town, I thought my Freebie Friday would be something I could wear to the fair (if only in my dreams). I found this top years ago when I was looking for a stitch that might resemble fish scales. I wanted to make a mermaid costume and this pattern was one of the firsts I found. I loved it so much I have kept it and fondled it all this time (yes, you can fondle a pattern). I never actually made it exactly as it was written but it definitely inspired me to make some of my favorite pieces with that crocodile stitch. I finished my mermaid skirt and made a top go with it. I was a little too shy to make the top as revealing as this one but it was still pretty.
I’ve seen similar attire to the dragon top worn at previous Ren Faires and perhaps one day (after working out like crazy and losing a few pounds) I might be bold enough to make it and wear it. I love looking at it though. It is hands down something a dragon slayer would wear under her dragon cloak!
So for those who would dare, you can find this gorgeous Targaryen Dragon Scale Bikini Top here.
And for those of you dying to know what my mermaid skirt and top looked like, here it is being proudly worn to Ren Faire one year. I was supposed to fan the bottom portion out and fill it with stuffing so it would look like a fin but I never got around to it. I just let it hang but most people still recognized it as a mermaid outfit.
