TNG jumpsuit analysis, part 1 added!

Here at the Star Trek Costume Guide, my plan is to cover Starfleet uniforms from the entire modern-era of Star Trek over the course of 2017! 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'll be updating all of my existing costume analyses and tutorials from the Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise eras of the franchise and moving them to their new home here, where they will continue to be free and available to all. I'll also be whipping up some ladies' sewing patterns for the aforementioned uniforms! 

Before that, though, in celebration of The Next Generation's 30th anniversary this year, we're starting 2017 with a journey through the TNG-era, thoroughly examining the Starfleet uniforms seen throughout the show. There will also be some TNG sewing patterns coming, including some for the ladies! 

Early TNG jumpsuit
We're hitting the ground running with the first half of my TNG jumpsuit analysis, which you can check out here! Or, simply click the "TNG" tab above. 

In this first half, we specifically focus on the early versions of the TNG-era uniforms, as designed by William Ware Theiss and modified by Durinda Rice Wood. 

During this portion of my TNG jumpsuit analysis, we examine everything from "The Lost Era" uniform timeline to how the jumpsuit zippers were hidden, from the highly unusual seam lines to the abundance of "redshirt" and "goldshirt" deaths. 

Did you know that costume designer Durinda Rice Wood actually changed several design aspects of these uniforms during The Next Generation's second season?
