Seanna Tyrell – dress based on Margaery from Game of Thrones
Since I don’t really like most of the colors used in the dresses Margaery wears, I wanted to create a costume myself, which is based on the same pattern but has some individual elements. My character is called Seanna of House Tyrell and can be interpreted as a cousin of Margaery. I constructed the pattern myself, with some basic information given in “Creating Historical Clothes: Pattern Cutting from Tudor to Victorian Times”, that I can recommend for everybody, but especially for those, whose size is in between two normal sizes. Since I could not find a fabric, I painted roses with silver color on a robust cotton. I used Polyester Chiffon for the upper skirt and thin cotton for the lining. The total cost was about 15 Euro / 20 $ and I needed about 3 – 4 days to make it, including the time the color needed for drying.
