Rainbow Brite Size 0 to 18 Small to Plus Size


So this is my newest creation, which I just put up on ETSY yesterday. It's a Rainbow Brite retro 80s, hippie paneled skirt. Modeling it is my most recent acquisition, a dummy / mannequin named, aptly, Daisy. She was delivered yesterday to my old address, and I got a note from UPS saying someone at my old place (I moved out from it a year ago) had signed for it. Thankfully, the leasing office had signed for it, so I popped Riley the wonder dog into the car, and we went to go get Daisy from her cardboard prison.
I took a bunch of new pics and updated my ETSY shop with them, figuring a dummy would indeed make it all seem more professional. So there ya have it.
Anyhoo, I'm proud of this skirt for several reasons. a) It fits from a size 0 to a size 18. That's a big variety. b) I French-seamed the whole thing because I don't have a serger and wanted to make this skirt last forever. c) I love the colors.
