Beam me up Scotty

My niece just turned 8 last week!  She loved the Star Wars dress I made for her last year, so I thought it would be fun to make her a Star Trek dress.  She knew who Kirk was, but had no idea who Picard was. I’m sure she will quickly be informed (and get to catch up on old episodes of both shows).

For the dress, I used the Sienna dress pattern by Lil Blue Boo.  I actually made it a size 6 and just added several inches to the length of the dress.  My niece is very slim and tall, so it should fit just fine.

The bottom of the dress says:

10 Reasons Why Kirk is better than Picard.
10.  One word: Hair!
9.  Kirk would personally throw Wesley off his bridge.
8.  Kirk would never sing to children in a crisis.
7.  Kirk wasn’t shy about taking his shirt off.
6.  Kirk can beat a Klingon bare-handed.
5.  Three words: Flying Leg Kick.
4.  Kirk doesn’t let the doctor tell him what to do.
3.  If Kirk finds a strange spinning probe, he blows it up.
2.  Kirk never drinks tea, ever.
1.  Kirk can beat a Vulcan at chess.

I showed my husband this and he immediately said #3 should be in the #1 spot.  I agree.  I picked up the Star Trek t-shirt from Target (Clearance) and the blue stripped fabric is interlock knit yardage.

Wrapped up in her dress, I hid another present for her. . .

Her first diary!  What little 8 year-old girl wouldn’t want a secret place to keep her thoughts!  Happy birthday Jana!
