This seller has a 70s-era Lincoln Enterprises TOS minidress pattern.

I’ve not seen this pattern or the dresses made from them, but I am assured it follows the original dress pattern, which is different than the premade dresses. I assume the sizing on the pattern is for the original velour also as opposed to stretch knit, so some customization is required.

Trek Dress Review Part II

Secret Wishes Trek TOS dress

Secret Wishes Trek TOS dress

So we have her a Star Trek TOS inspired piece from a lingerie company!

The dress has a different collar than the original – it is designed to show cleavage.

The material is a stretch polyester / spandex blend.

It is not precisely the same as the original, but in the same spirit and does not have to be shortened.

Trek Dress Review

May 21, 2011

Since the release of the Star Trek reboot, original uniforms have become available again. I will review TOS dresses as they are found online.

1) RUBIES

Rubies made this dress back in the 1970s. After the 2009 reboot, they dusted off the old pattern and the dresses are easy to find on Ebay and online.

Star Trek TOS Minidress

Star Trek TOS Minidress

Construction: 100% polyester. The detail is rather superficial but it is there. It is quite stretchy, so order a size down. The length is about 1.5 inches too long. Interestingly the men’s dress uniforms shirts are the correct length for a minidress.

Here is a Rubies that was shortened:

The costume seems durable and can be used for cosplay.
