I saw it in Spirit Halloween today. Needless to say, I squealed like a 12-yr-old in a Jonas Brothers concert. But I'm too broke to buy it. Also, I'd like a blue uniform, rather than red.

Does anyone know where I can find a good, simple pattern?

Roddenberry.com has copies of the original Theiss ones for $15.

I managed to buy a plain red cotton dress from a high street store that I'm planning to make into a TOS uniform. It won't look exactly right, but hopefully will be close enough, as long as I get the black collar, the badge and the braiding right.

And it only cost me ¿16 as opposed to ¿50 for the official costume.

Fingers crossed it will turn out okay. I guess the actual dress is the hardest bit...surely even I, with my totally rubbish sewing skills, can't mess up a bit of braid and a badge! :laugh:
