I also have several costumes I've been commissioned to make!
Daenerys Astapor/Dragonscale Dress
I'm particularly excited to make Daenerys' Astapor/Dragonscale Dress from Game of Thrones because it pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone. I will also be making the matching cape seen in some scenes. With this costume, I will learn new skills, such as the dragonscale smocking, and sharpen old ones, such as pattern drafting and alterations.

Female Hobbit Costume
As if this wasn't enough! I'm also quite excited to make a Female Hobbit Costume, for which I have also created a Pinterest board which will develop as I find inspiration and materials. After making all those Italian Tarantella costumes, another variation of the "wench" style will be a piece of cake...I hope!
For this costume, I will be altering Butterick 6196 to a short-sleeved blouse. I plan on using Butterick 4669 for the bodice and drafting the apron and skirt.
