What second-generation trekkie sewing nut could resist this fabric?!


Simplicity 2591 (I quite enjoy this pattern, although online reviews I've seen seem to reflect that a lot of people have had problems with this pattern...)

Pretty proud of my fussy cutting and zipper inserting skills in this dress. I think I got it lined up pretty freakin' well!

OMG...I absolutely FLIPPED when I saw your dress...LOVE IT!!!

SUPER FUN comic fabric, style (full skirted dresses are THE BEST!) and concept...The model looks great in it too, BTW.

I rate it *13 STARZ*...Congrats & Live Long and Prosper!

I love it.  The style is great and I LOVE that you made a Star Trek Dress.

I am in awe of your skills!  Great job.

WOW! I must have this! I love all the wonderful clothes you are making, but this one ... *biiig trekkie sigh* .. might just be my favourite, even if it is not the most elaborate you've ever done.. I just really, really love it!

Brilliant!  What a great use for this fabric!  I bought some in January to make pajamas, but haven't gotten to them yet.  You've reinvigorated my interest.
