TNG admiral uniform and medical smocks for sale!

So far this year, I've made several replica TNG uniforms for demonstration purposes (for my TNG season 1 admiral sewing pattern, my TNG medical smock sewing pattern, and their corresponding sewing tutorials).

However, Kate and I have no interest in keeping them and would rather they go to happy new owners who will enjoy them instead. 

As of the writing of this post, there are three women's medical smocks (version 1, version 2, and version 5) with one pair of corresponding trousers.

They were made to fit a woman approximately 5'8" tall, with a 33" bust, 25" waist, and 35" hips.


Version 1 was patterned directly from the original, screen-used Dr. Pulaski medical smock I examined (graded to the aforementioned size).

It features authentic paneling and interior construction.

Version 2 was adapted from the women's TNG skant pattern, just as I believe the originals to have been.

This is the uniform style D. Pulaski wore for most of the first half of season 2.

Version 5 is the uniform style Dr. Pulaski wore for the majority of her appearances, specifically during the second half of season 2.

We also have a single pair of corresponding women's high-waisted trousers with the medical/sciences teal accents on the lower pant legs.

And finally, the men's season 1 admiral uniform includes both jacket AND trousers!

This uniform was intended to fit a man approximately 5'8" to 5'10" tall, with a 42-44" chest, 38-39" waist, and 42" hips.

The jacket features authentic paneling, proportions, and hidden zipper closure - as well as replica brooch!

The high-waisted trousers feature gold accents on the lower pant legs.

All of the aforementioned uniforms can be found in the "Sale/Clearance" section of our Etsy shop!

These TNG costumes are all great for cosplaying, but they also make impressive display pieces, too!

This is a one-time-only kind of thing, and we're only selling this small handful of them, so grab one while you can!

Again, the reason we're selling them is simple: we're always making new costumes and have many more patterns in the queue, but we simply don't have enough storage space or interest in cosplaying all of them. We'd rather these costumes go to owners who can appreciate and enjoy them!

This is a great chance to grab a high-quality uniform replica at a huge discount!

Free TNG medical smock pattern!

As you've probably seen from my TNG medical smock analysis, blog post documenting the smock, and TNG medical smock video tour, I got a lot of mileage out of the screen-used Dr. Pulaski uniform I examined recently.

In addition to measuring every edge, every nook and cranny of the costume, I actually extrapolated a sewing pattern from it, using a technique I learned from a book called 101 Sewing Secrets from the Singer Sewing Reference Library.
101 Sewing Secrets - Singer Reference Library

Basically, this process entails pinning or hand-basting a layer of muslin to the garment and lightly tracing the seam lines, darts, etc. with a pencil.


I did for this every single piece of the smock.

In addition to the shape of the pieces themselves, I also noted the direction of the grain, as well as all the various seam/hem allowances (etc.)

I transferred my muslin pattern to my dot-and-cross pattern-drafting paper, "true-ing" all the seam lines with the various rulers needed and double-checking everything for accuracy.

Then, I added all the appropriate seam/hem allowances to the appropriate edges and traced the pattern onto the large pieces of paper we usually use for our (Bad Wolf Costumes) sewing patterns. 

Luckily for all of you, I play a lot of Tetris, and I managed to cram every pattern piece onto a single 36” x 48” page!

I've since had it scanned at my local copy/print shop, cleaned it up, and digitally labeled it, so it's all ready to go! 

You can download my extrapolated pattern here for free. 

The pattern is a large-format PDF, 36" x 48" black/white. Unless you have a large format printer, you'll need to take it to your local copy/print shop to have it printed.

A few notes on the pattern draft:

  • The finished garment measures approximately 38” around the chest and 33 ½” around waist.

  • The grain lines indicate the crossgrain, not the straight grain! Use the horizontal “weave” of the jumbo spandex as a guide.

  • The neckline trim and yoke piping pieces were extrapolated based on the length of the original seam lines, rather than tracing the actual pieces.

  • There were slight discrepancies on the right and left sides of the garment; I made it symmetrical.

  • I took the liberty of rotating the inner/under-sleeve seam slightly forward so it matched the side seam.

  • I reduced the sleeve hem allowance from 2 ⅜” to an even 2”.

  • The bottom of the original smock was simply cut to length and left unhemmed; I added an optional 1” hem allowance around the bottom.

  • You'll want to allow about ⅛" in any particular direction for "human error!"


I'll be using this pattern as a base and grading it into multiple sizes for my (Bad Wolf Costumes) patterns, and those should be ready soon.

In the mean time, though, I hope you enjoy this free pattern!

My TNG medical smock sewing tutorial will follow soon after the (BWC) pattern, and you should be able to use it with this pattern, too!
