Just dropping in to complain. I haven't been able to get this amazingly cool bathrobe wholly out of my mind ever since MistressT posted it, so a few weeks ago I picked up a shawl collar bathrobe pattern at a sale. Then I made the mistake of asking my husband what color/job he'd like to have, assuming he'd go for either command gold or "operations" red. He picked science officer blue. Guess what color is hardest to match?

Gold fleece is easy to find. I can find suitably red flannel or fleece. Science officer blue is so elusive I may have to go with the "periwinkle" fleece at Hancock's, though it's not quite right and I have a hard time imagining Mr. Spock wearing anything called periwinkle; still, it's better than the powder blue, which is what I mostly find.

Solutions would seem to be:
1. Give up. Don't make super cool ST robe. Allow husband to continue stealing my plush winter robe.
2. Live with fact otherwise super cool robe is inadequately blue.
3. Present husband with robe in color of my choice, saying "But you're the captain of our little Enterprise, honey" or "You know you have an engineering mind and, besides, Scottish accents are sexy".
4. Make myself a gold robe first, then tell husband he has to be a redshirt because I'm the captain and I say so. Any insubordination and he'll be sent on an away mission. Cheesy

There's also "Continue dithering until cold weather is past, then expand search to include less warm fabrics", but that seems like less of a solution and more of a delaying tactic.

NOOOOOOOOO!  Hmmmm.  I recently was asked to make another version of the dog vest I made using the scraps from this project and found a pretty suitable blue, but it was NOT with the other polar fleece at my local JoAnn, it was with a special section of "team colors" for the local state universities along with the gold.  Perhaps your search will be added with "team" colors in mind?

I'm working on TOS command color pajamas for Cpt Bigmouth. I found appropriate colors in flannel.
