1. I am currently making a cosplay garment. Lt. DATA , styled as a 1950s female. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and I would really appreciate if you could fill me in on something. I'm wanting to know the angles of the edges of the yellow area of Data's top front(the usual uniform worn). I feel these need to be very precise and identical to the onscreen uniform. I will be happy to send pics of the final project!
    Thanks a million!!!

    • Hi Landon,

      I appreciate your perfectionism and can certainly relate.

      The asymmetrical front insert changed contours throughout the show, on both the TNG jumpsuits and TNG jackets. (Costume designer Durinda Rice Wood changed some of the TNG jumpsuit detailing in season two, including the asymmetrical front panel. Then costume designer Robert Blackman introduced the new TNG jackets in season 3 and tinkered with both uniform styles from then to the end of the show.)

      I'll be going into more detail about this soon in my updated TNG jumpsuit analysis, and my upcoming TNG jacket analysis.

      But in short, there is no simple or single answer to your question. It depends on which uniform and season, as well as your own personal preference.

      Happy sewing! πŸ™‚

  2. Awesome resource! Could you tackle the TNG dress uniform top (no need on the pants. They’re generally loose fitting stirrup pants). My mom and I designed one and she made a pattern for it, but in her Alzheimer’s-addled years before she passed, she destroyed it. I do remember the attention to detail. Such as how it opens. There is no zipper at the back. It opens along that piping edge that runs from the neck to the right shoulder.

  3. Hi,
    I would love to sew the TNG women's skant and appreciate that you offer the pattern for free.
    I have a normal houshold-size printer at home with which I can print 4x4 pages.
    According to your printing instructions, it shows 5x5 though. I miss a reference guide for the size in your PDF document (for example a square showing 4x4 cm or inch) in order to know how large to print the pattern. I haven't seen either which clothing size the skant will be when printed.
    As I am not a native speaker, I might have missed out on something. Can you please help?

    Kind regards,

  4. What height are these patterned for? It will help me know if I need to make any adjustments before I start.


  5. Do you make any costumes for XL-XXL women or XXXL-XXXXL men (tops)? My husband and I are going on the Star Trek cruise in February and I'm hoping to get some costumes made (Either TNG or DS9 preferred).


    • Thank you for the interest, but my patterns only include the sizes listed. I suggest contacting Frank Skony on Facebook or Instagram; he occasionally does uniform commissions, and from what I've seen he does excellent work. He may be able to help you. πŸ™‚
