So I've decided to try and make my wife a Daenerys costume for Halloween. our baby (who will be 3 months by Halloween) will be her dragon. Has anyone seen a pattern for this dress. I found this site which looks pretty comprehensive http://jfsoup.blogspot.com/2013/07/daenerys-cosplay-pattern-and-makeup.html. I just touched a sewing machine for the first time a few weeks ago so I'm looking for all the info I can get going into this. Hopefully I'll be able to make this, finish the decorations I'm building and put together my costume. :eek:

You should check out the Pattern books at your local craft/ fabric store. I believe it's Simplicity that has some GOT costumes. Both Hobby Lobby and JoAnns will run these patterns on sale for $1 or 2 every couple weeks. This is a huge savings as most of the costumes run about $20. The tutorial was great, however as a novice you will find having the pattern will make this task so much easier. Also mentioned in the tutorial was the suggestion to make the pieces using a cheap muslin to try out size. I always do this when working with expensive materials or making a garment that needs to be fitted.

Thanks Spooky. I did end up going to Joann's and finding a pattern. I didn't find anything when I searched Joann's online but it took about two seconds in the store. Luckily I'm going to be getting some help from a relative on the sewing. I'm hoping I don't screw it up because I spent way to much on fabric.
