I have looked.  And looked.  And there is nothing remotely cute for an Air Force costume.  So I am making it.  I need some help in the idea department tho.

Im 5'9'' and on the fairer side of average.  I live in San Diego, so weather is no problem.  I was thinking something like a high waisted pencil skirt with a button up shirt under it, with all the right ribbons and everything.  But I cant seem to find good things to rip apart/patterns to make it myself.  Any other suggestions for an Air Force themed girl would be fantastic.

THANKS

Maybe try going to an Army Surplus store and getting some actual military style stuff, and then altering it. I know those places are usually a little heavy on the camo-gear, but they do sometimes have dress uniforms.

If you're going for blues/service uniform, then it's pretty easy: dark blue skirt or slacks (and they come up *really* high, speaking from experience) and blue button up shirt; you might find something that'll work with a men's shirt. Something like Simplicity 8760 for the shirt, but omit the pockets for the ladies' version. Maybe Simplicity 2470 (no pockets) for the skirt? If I recall correctly, the shirt is a cotton/poly blend, and the skirt is a wool blend.

Maybe go retro with WASP/WAF/WFTD uniforms?

I could easily see these translated into a slightly more feminine style with a high-waisted pencil skirt.
