I'm going to the convention in New Jersey this weekend, so I made a science officer dress from the original series. And, yes, I'll be wearing opaque black tights and bike shorts underneath. Haha, those original series dresses were SKIMPY! I still need to make the insignia, so any tips would be appreciated!

This is also the first time I've used a pattern to make a dress (it was a Simplicity re-issue from the 1960's), but I kind of just ended up playing it by ear anyway. It's a bit wonky!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Ooooo.... I want! I love Star Trek!

If you could find some gold fabric then you could cut out the insignia shape and then applique it on to the dress and stitch in the design in the middle of the insignia as well.

What is that fabric? And if you have time, there's a company that sells the insignias for about $6 a piece...Intergalatic Trading Company, I think...I could be wrong....

The fabric is just plain old cotton. I thought about velour, but I live in Massachusetts and it's hot and super humid all the time so I didn't even want to THINK about fitting it in this weather.

I probably should have bought an insignia, but I'm such a procrastinator! I think I'll probably go with the gold fabric. That's kind of what they looked like in T.O.S. anyway.

I'm excited to do some outrageous 1960's hair and makeup!
