This was a much more difficult dress to make than the mourning one. Embroidery and fabric painting aside, the fabric was stiffer with less give and less drape and my shape has become more hour-glassy than it was when I made the first gown so the princess seams really gave me hell. Nevertheless I got it done and by and large I am happy with it.
I felt like a princess, or at least an evil queen and that was my goal!

And my silly "I heart Jaime" and "Hear Me Roar" garters!
