Homemade Game Of Thrones Costume
Daenerys Targaryen Game of Thrones Costume.
I chose to make a Daenerys Targaryen Game of Thrones Costume. I happen to have loose weave tweed fabric and faux suede fabric. I printed off the photo from the internet and started cutting.
I started with the skirt. I measured 1 meter of faux suede fabric and made an elastic casing for the waist. The front piece of fabric is just cut into two strips and hand sewn to the top to the waist of the skirt.
I then made the belt out of contrasting faux suede and cut a strip so I could tie the belt at the back.
For the top I used the same loose weave fabric that I used for the strip in the front of the skirt.
I did not have a pattern, so I had to just start cutting by what I saw in the photo.
I have a dress form, so I pinned the fabric to the dress form and started shaping the one side.
Once I was happy with how it looked I cut out another piece for the other side.
For the back of the top, I just cut out a piece of the same fabric large enough to cover the lower part of the back.
To sew the pieces together I placed the fabric back on my dress form and I place pins in the spots I wanted to sew. Once my front pieces were together, I had sewn one side of the back to the side of the front. Leaving the other side open, so you can get in and out of the top.
When that was done I cut strips of all my fabric types and made a braid. This was hand sewn onto the front of the top and criss cross at the back, stitching the straps to the back of the top.
I wish I had taken photos as I went along, but unfortunately I didn't.
I hope this makes sense. If I make another one I will most definitely take photos.
