Happy Halloween! For once I actually have a cool costume ready to go. I’ve always wanted my own Star Trek TOS uniform, so I decided to “make it so”. (I realize that’s a Picard reference, deal with it) I’ve always thought they were kind of sexy without shedding too much skin. Unfortunatly, the pattern (Simplicity 8028) is out of print. So I had to buy it on eBay. The dress came together easily. I was worried about sewing the ribbed knit neckline, but it came out perfectly. Then the dress was a little baggy so I took in the sides a little to make it more flattering. Finally, I bought the patch on Amazon, sewed on some rickrack and it was done. I’m pretty proud of it. Now I just need to make Jacob the Captain Kirk tunic.
Have a safe and candy-filled Halloween.
