Just in Time for Comic Con – A Game of Thrones Shirt!

Hey guys, remember in my last post how I was all, “OMG GoT fabric”? Well, since I will be making my first pilgrimage to Comic Con, I figured what better way to celebrate than to deck myself out in a sassy GoT shirt?

There was a whole mess of stress that went into making this shirt, including having to rush to get the fabric to me in time, settling on a shirt pattern only to have the instructions be so confusing that I gave up on them, messing up the test run of the second pattern I chose and having barely enough fabric to make the shirt (and no room for error). Luckily, the sewing of the shirt went smoothly and it looks quite spiffy, if I do say so myself.

I used the ruffle tutorial found here (minus the armholes and with the shaping) and 2 yards of this fabric. I ordered the basic combed cotton, which wasn’t as soft as I was hoping it would be, but is still pretty comfy. Like I said, 2 yards left me very little fabric left over, and not enough fabric if I needed to recut one of the pieces, so I would suggest a little more just to be on the safe side.

Note: my boyfriend arbitrarily decided to cut off my head when taking these pictures, and we didn’t have enough light to retake, so please excuse the awkward faceless pictures. It was not intentional. But nobody really cares about my face; it’s all about the shirt. Right? Right.

So, how many sigils can you spot?

Serious ruffle action!

Do you guys like it? It will have its debut on Saturday. I hope it will bring me luck when it comes to getting into the GoT panel.

Game of Thrones FABRIC!

Thanks to reader Peter for letting me know that he has designed a fabric pattern featuring a ton of sigils from various GoT houses. Soon you could be snuggled under a comforter or wearing a sassy skirt while also showing off your nerd cred. Bonus points for including two of my favorite houses (Tarth and Hightower)!

UPDATE: In case you prefer to pledge you allegiance to one house rather than several, there is a Stark pattern by shaddock for sale as well.
