Costume Information

Description
This is just a simple outfit of Dany's that she wears when she first arrives in Qarth. I think it's a really nice and relaxed outfit. It's quite plain, not something she would usually wear, but I like that :)

Journal

My hair! :D (Posted 9th July 2012)

I popped in some extensions and plaited it myself

Side view! (Posted 5th July 2012)

from the sideeeeeee. (bit of an iffy colouration going on here as well)

Front view (Posted 5th July 2012)

BIT of an iffy colouration going on here, the lighting was weirdd

The shoulder (Posted 5th July 2012)

I added 3 pleats in the shoulders for a little extra pouffiness!

The brooch, the sleeves, and the tie at the side (Posted 5th July 2012)

Here you can see the tie that I secure the sleeves with.
The brooch I used is the same one I use for my other Daenerys outfit (her leathers from season 1)

The sleeves are 63 inches long!!! (Posted 5th July 2012)

They probably don't need to be THIS long, but oh well :D when it's on me I ruffle them all up and tie them there are my wrists with a sewed strip of spare linen.

(the mannequin's boobs are smaller than mine so it kinda makes the gown look reeeally odd lol)

(inside) two of the ties (Posted 5th July 2012)

After I sewed it all together I added ties inside and outside to tie it all together when it's on me.

Fabric (Posted 5th July 2012)

Natural linen.

This is a reeeeally close up photo, it's a much finer weave in real life, I think it's a light/medium weight linen (?)
