This is a Starfleet uniform I made for my daughter to wear, hopefully this october! (If it still fits her by then.) This is a circa 2366-2372 class A uniform (or Star Trek: The Next Generation, season 3-7) with appropriate insignia for a commander...hopefully my husband will be getting a captain's uniform!

This is a close up of the rank insignia and communicator done with gold and silver fabric paint.

And here is a picture of the back of the uniform...surprisingly this was the hardest part to figure out because none of the uniform web sites I found showed pictures of the back! This required much "research" on my part, which roughly translated means I spent 4 hours watching episodes!

I really, really love the way this project turned out! Please C&C!

You got "rocks", from me! This is darling. Wish I could get my kids interested enough in Trek, of any era, to convince 'em to wear the uni's!  Grin

This is so cute.  You did a wonderful job, and all of that *difficult* research really paid off.

I can make that...

Wonderfully done!  Of course, we have to do extensive research for accuracy! Grin

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

Lol! Thanks everyone! It's nice to be supported in my nerdiness! I guess I just am hoping to pass it on to the "Next Generation"! Oh wow, that was cheesy. But seriously, thanks for the support! I'll update it when I finish the plush phaser and tricorder I'm going to attempt!
