I used a simple pattern that I could color block, and had very few pieces, a princess seam style that zips up the back. I am glad I hoard fabric left overs because I had just enough blue with white star scraps to eek out front and back panels for this dress. I bought 2 yards of red cotton for the sides. I modified the sleeves a bit. I bought special gold piping to go between the red and starred fabric.
I figured I could whip this out in a night or two after work, easy peasy. Yeah, right. Moral of this story is, don't start sewing at 8:00 p.m. after a full day at work. The first night I cut out the starred front panel and two star back panels. Then I put the zipper in the back pieces. The second night, I cut out the red side front and side back panels, and sewed it all together. Well look at that! All it needs is a hem and sleeves. Took a picture on my dress form.
Instead of Wonder Woman's usual golden rope lasso, I purchased a gold chain belt with tassels from Ebay that looked a bit more 60s mod than rope. I found an official Wonder Woman iron on patch and added that to the front.

They had the original 1970s Wonder Woman outfit worn by Lynda Carter in the TV show! I was sad to see how faded it had become. It was still really awesome to view it in person.
At the end of the day I ditched the boots and switched to blue sneakers. My friend Jim bought me a Starbuck's coffee, and I found the perfect Starship Captain's chair to relax in for a minute.
$4.00 red fabric
$5.50 gold piping
$33.50 Total Accessories are always more expensive than the fabric and trim! Again, glad I hoard my leftovers!
