Game of Thrones Daenerys costume, McCalls 7854, in grey moiré silk faille and grey furnishing chenille. Both were gifted fabrics. Shot acetate sleeve lining from stash, so this was a zero-cost costume yay!
Not without its problems, and although this is well drafted, I’m not impressed AT ALL with the finish inside. You’d need to fully line this to get a ‘nice’ clean inside. As all three fabrics fray like hell, despite pinking AND zigzagging inside, it’s rather bitty.
However, I did manage to fix the pointy boobs and the escaping shoulders, and it’s actually pretty easy to wear, even those dangling sleeves. I’ve survived a day teaching in it anyway, including a lunchtime club AND after school support.
Stupid ‘who am I ?’ suggestions today included:
How to train your dragon [cos that’s a character, isn’t it?] [but at least there’s a dragon involved]
**I think Spiderman is the booby prize-winner , don’t you?**
However, MOST staff and 6th form at least got it, and even those that didn’t get it, were complimentary.
Anyway, with no further ado, some [very creased] pics after wearing it all day, and with the daylight just fading, they had to be indoors. Please do not dwell on my fat belly, but giggle at the attempts at a twirling pic, which failed miserably.
