So a while ago I posted a dress I made for an every day version of one of Margeary Tyrell’s dresses. I had to make another one of my favs from season three - Dany’s blue wrap dress!
If you’re looking at it and are like ‘Huh? I don’t get it’ It’s meant to be a subtle tribute. Something you can wear everyday and you’ll know it shows your love for GoT, and other people that understand and know the show will get it too. But, it’s also a nice dress you can wear in public : )
I also made another one with shoulder detailing! I used a dragon scale smocking tutorial I found online!
Yes, it is darker than the original. But I like navy <3
I hope you all like it! Also, since I really loved making this dress it’s for sale on my etsy : )
So who loves Game of Thrones? Everyone! Or everyone should, at least. I know I love it! I am also particularly a fan of the gorgeous fashion- the long, detailed, beautiful dresses and styling that I want to wear every day. But unfortunately, this isn’t Westeros.
So I thought to myself, what if I made a GoT dress I CAN wear every day? I got so excited. And I knew what dress it would be.
Margeary Tyrell is by far, one of my most favorite characters. She’s also (tied with Danaerys) in 1st place for my fav fashion picks of the show- she just dresses so graceful and elegant yet so sexy! So here’s my inspiration:
This dress is gorgeous, summery, and totally my style. I got down to sketching, and bought my supplies:
Fabric- a simple blue cotton from Joanns, for about 5/yd. I’m a fan of easy to work with fabrics, and as this is a day dress, the less fancier the better!
Also included here are the invisible zipper, thread, bias tape (which I didn’t end up using) paintbrushes, and gold paint. I decided, for the brocade gold pattern on the front of the dress, to simple use a thick, gold paint and draw the design on myself. I couldn’t find the perfect fabric plus it was a lot cheaper. Also makes the fabric lighter and easier to wear, and I get to have some more fun with it.
Step 1: Cutting and Pinning!
1/2 circle skirt!
front wrap pieces
everything all pinned on- looking good!
Chest darts all pinned- I left the pins in so that when I started painting I wouldn’t paint areas that weren’t going to be seen anyways!
Step 2: Painting!
laid both pieces out on cardboard, let’s get started!
That paint came out really awesome! I did 2 coats, and it went on thick and strong, with no loose sparkles.
Step 3: Sewing!
sewed up the circle skirt!
the bottom half of the back is sewn, and the top half pinned
and the front is sewn!
Step 4: Sleeves!
pinning on sleeves!
finishing up the sleeves, also pictured is the invisible zipper!
Step 5: DONE!
