  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! 🙂
