May I just say that I would wear the shit out of these dresses?

I have no idea what the text says. I could use Chrome to translate it into some English and try to figure it out from there, but I saw "Janeway" and was happy enough with that.

On to the writing!

I also found this rather hilarious. Sometimes I think the similar things about our food. The others--and the bafflement--just made me chuckle. That and the fact that the teacher is clearly torturing her hungry students with pictures of food.

I want these dresses with a passion beyond passion. A Trekkie student of mine sent me the think the other day, and I have been lusting after them ever since.

I saw the link on a new friend's FB page and wanted one immediately. Sewing runs in my family and apparently skips a generation, historically, but my grandmother is a great seamstress and I am a sufferer of Sewing Frustration Syndrome. Alas.

At some point I hope to network and find someone in the area who enjoys less patterned-base sewing and is good with copying costumes. They certainly exist out there.

But it does seem that our dear LJ friends are willing to help, if a pattern shows up--and Tetley seems to be taking the lead in perhaps initiating contact! ;D What a glorious place this is.

She says she's going to a try-out - looking properly nerdy. Then there's a bit about taking the pictures - take a look at her friend's T's nice floor and book-cases - and getting good, stern pics with a kitten traipsing around isn't everything.

A bit of thought about the hairdo - had to be stern and proper, and well away from the face so that she can apply make-up straight to the hairline.

That's the general essence of it. I get the German, but not the Trek-words, I'm afraid. Ask Tetley if you want both!

Oh, and in the comments several people asked whether there is a pattern, only she hasn't answered them yet. If she puts up answers to all the comments, I'm perfectly willing to check them out. If she says something about a pattern being available, you can always ask Tetley or Minerva's Eule to order them or anything. I'm sure they'd be willing to help out.

I'd be willing to help out, but I can read German, not write it.

Thank you so much for the translation and offer to help! You are a brilliant friend to have. :D I'll keep my eye out to see if there are any comment responses now that people have commented again recently.

I would help you with any further questions;
she also writes that she is aware that the sign on her skirt is not from the same time as the ornament on her jacket, but she does not care...

Glad to be of service! I hope you do get in contact with her. Please spill, if you do! Seems as if some of us are dying for patterns. ;D

I love those dresses! Star Trek does Victorian? Fantastic, and they look great. :D

Me too! Well, Star Trek fans do Victorian, apparently. :B But yes, I think they're fantastic as well! I would absolutely wear one.
