So as soon as I saw Daenerys winter coat in season 7 of Game of Thrones I just new I had to make it. Michele Clapton was the costume designer and her work is phenomenal! I have never worked with fur and this is actually the first full length jacket I have ever made. I knew I was crazy for attempting this but I’m that determined and I’m that crazy that I did. I spent a week working on this jacket and I mean almost every day from the time I got up until the middle of the night, until damn near dawn. I was exhausted, my fingers were sore and my entire place was covered in fur, by the way it is 100% fake fur. When I completed the jacket I vacuumed my place everyday for a week and there was still traces of fur. The coat is so bad ass and it was worth all the blood sweat and tears. I literally had nose bleeds from fur getting into my nose!
Regrettably during the process I didn’t take too many process photos, this first jacket was such a learning experience for me and there are so many things I would do differently. I’m hoping to make another one soon with some improvements but for now the few of you that may want to attempt this on your own I’ll offer some tips and ways to approach.
