I don’t think I’m alone in finding sewing an intimidating activity. Whether it’s stitching by hand or sitting down at a machine and making it do exactly what you want or even choosing thread, I get frustrated. Therefore, I’m impressed by anyone who sews, and I’m especially impressed with Redditor naynames. She decided to tackle a sewing project, and she chose Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones.
I know the picture isn’t crystal clear, but the outfit is clearly the one worn by Cersei in the season six finale. The elegant gown goes from neck to toe, and nayname didn’t even use a pattern. She said her previous sewing experience was limited to patches:
thank you! in terms of sewing experience: i would do jean patches and thats about it. and i had no experience with stretch fabric (which is what i used for this). i made a mock up dress and made adjustments while wearing it!
Wow. This gives me faith to try sewing again and again and hopefully it inspires some of you to do the same.
Nayname also crafted the shoulder pauldrons. She used EVA floor mats. She says:
i made a pattern the best i could and there were some gaps in the seams so i filled it with gel super glue and sanded it down to make it even. then i used thin craft foam and cut out details and glued it down! the chain was some old chainmail on a failed cosplay that i reused.
