One of my favorite shows is the re-boot of Battlestar Galactica! I loved the 1978 version as well when I was a kid, but it doesn’t hold up as well as Ronald Moore’s re-telling.
Sure, there were parts of the series that drove me bonkers (the episode “Black Market” can just go away and die, thank you very much) but other than a few hiccups, the show was brilliant. And to me, season 1 and season 2.0 are perfection. (Season 2.5 contains aforementioned “Black Market” so you know how I feel about that.)
But overall, there are so many reasons why I love this series. Powerful moments in the series will just randomly pop in my brain. (One of my favorites being Adama’s rescue in Season 3.) Goosebumps, just thinking about it!
The heart of the show is the fleet. It’s the last of humanity running away from the Cylons to start anew. So this seemed to be the best representation of the show in terms of what to put on the fabric.
I designed the fabric myself using www.spoonflower.com. I used Vipers for the top of the dress and the rest of the fleet for the bottom. I hadn’t expected the picture of the actual Battlestar to be so huge!
But it turns out, it worked out perfectly.
Here's a time-lapse of the whole process!
