Becoming ‘Khaleesi’ - Stage Seven

Trousers and boots

It’s very hard to get references of these trousers. And because of this I’m going to give you the best one i’ve found!

I found this reference AFTER I bought my fabric. So it needed some work. I bought a denim fabric with a slight stretch in a lightish blue.

I then hand dyed this with dylon dye in an antique grey.

I liked that this also added a textured finish that’s very ‘game of throne-sy’ xD. I then made the trousers out of this using a very basic trouser pattern. I have a horrible history of trouser-making disasters so that’s not something I wanted to risk with this, so it’s just elasticated at the top. Nice and simple. xD Then I just tried them on for size. Dany’s trousers are quite tight fitting but still loose around the knees (so she can strut like a badass mofo obviously)

After taking this I decided to weather the trousers more as my previous weathering didn’t show up on the photo too much. I rubbed charcoal down the seams and in random areas, then I also mixed some charcoal with water and ‘painted’ that on random sections. I also used sandpaper on the knees and other points that would see wear and tear.

And here’s a blurry photo of the finished result. The weathering is clearer now. :3

As a side note - Boots! Dany has boots with a slight heel and strips of fabric wrapped around them. Again, very tricky to find references of. I was very prepared to have to make boot covers, but by a stroke of luck I found very similar boots on ebay! So sorry not much of a tutorial here! D: The only difference with my boots is that they end slightly higher than Dany’s. I did consider modding this, but tbh I was a little worried about ruining them and causing more harm than good. xD I’m super happy with these boots as they are so they’re staying this way. :D
