This is part of a light-up dance costume and goes with the lightcatcher dress and fiber-optic laser fans. The costumes are intended to aid self-expression and augment the inherent drama and design of the dance costume.
The Dazzle Jacket echoes the cut of the costume, creating a striking glowing outline to emphasize the dancer's movements on a darkened stage.
Step 1: Materials
EL wire (I used http://elbestbuy.com/shleofremali.html)
2 AA batteries
Step 2: EL Wire
If you want it extra nice, you can pick out the edge of the fabric and tuck the end in.
Step 3: Make a Pocket
Cut a rectangle of somewhat stretchy fabric. You can finish the edge by zigzag stitching around the outside, or just fold the edges under as you whip stitch it on over the battery pack. Leave the end of the battery pack away from the cord open, so you can scrunch the fabric to slide the battery pack out if you need to change the batteries.
