Michele Carragher, the head embroider on Game of Thrones, made this awesome tutorial to show how she created the dragonscale fabric that appears on several of Daenarys’ costumes in S3 and S4.
Ms. Carragher says that the dragonscale fabric was created because “In season 3 the Costume Designer Michele Clapton wanted a Dragonscale like textured embroidery that starts to emerge on three of Daenery’s costumes, which becomes heavier and more pronounced, growing and evolving as the season progresses” (Carragher).
In stages 9-11 of the tutorial we see how the textile evolves from lightly to heavily embellished. This progression is meant to illustrate Daenarys’ personal growth and the growth of her dragons (source).
Don’t care about Game of Thrones but that shit is cool
I didn’t learn about sewing as much as I learned that, no matter what she currently gets, Ms Carragher isn’t paid enough.
That’s frickin’ cool.

I cannot tolerate people who think animated movies are for kids. If you cannot appreciate the years of work that goes into writing and animating and editing and everything else because of a PG rating I am sorry for you, friend, because you are missing out. No, actually, I’m not sorry for you, I am absolutely downright disappointed in you. No “more for me,” no “suit yourself,” no. It takes me a good hour to draw a good, shaded, detailed, graphite, full-body, single-framed, still picture of Jack Frost can you even imagine how long it takes to animate Merida’s hair!? A full ninety minutes of that luscious red mane bouncing in all directions how do you even???????????? If you cannot even marvel at how absolutely beautiful animation is I have zero time for you. Have you seen Toothless’s eyes though? Have you seen those pupils contract? Have you seen Rapunzel’s hair glow? Have you seen Elsa transform? Have you seen Hiccup’s stubble? Jack’s clothes flapping in the wind as he fights Pitch? Have you seen Merida’s hair wet? Have you seen how much older everyone in How to Train Your Dragon 2 is? Like they had to start from scratch the characters are so different that must take FOREVER! Have you seen the fabric of Anna’s dress?Have you seen the details in Hiccup’s new gear? Have you seen the veins in Hiccup’s mom’s neck? Have you seen the paintings in Anna and Elsa’s ballroom? What about the paintings in Rapunzel’s tower? And the whole stretch from when she and Eugene get to the city up until they leave? When they’re dancing? The lanterns? Have you seen the dragon swarm in the nest? Have you seen Pitch’s shadow monsters, or all of Tooth’s little fairies? Have you seen the crowds? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW BEAUTIFUL AND DETAILED THAT IS?!The have separate people animating different parts of the same character do you know how crazy animating entire crowds is!? And doing it well, with detail? I’m sorry but if you think animated movies are just for kids I cannot be friends with you.
There is so much truth here.
