i wore my rainbow brite costume last night!!! there were a few other rainbow brites at the party i went to, but i was the only home sewn one here is a picture taken just before i left for the party:
i did the dress without a pattern - i used elastic in the top to hold it up and the ribbon trim ties in the back which kept me from having to do any shaping. the arm and leg warmers i crocheted from rainbow yarn and the shoes i just had lying around (sort of embarrassing, but i did!).
