The Challenge: Terminology: Bodice, described in The Historical Fashion and Textile Encyclopedia at the Dreamstress as "Originally a boned, stiffed garment for the upper body, without sleeves" or "the upper part of a dress"
Fabric: cotton broadcloth, cotton drill, and some sort of synthetic stuff
Pattern: based on my body block/sloper that I drafted last year
Year: um... the Year of the Five Kings? Actually, I'm re-reading the books and I think the part in the show this costume is from is actually the year before a new century in Westeros.
Notions: thread, poly batting, hooks and bars, snaps
How historically accurate is it? Not really at all. But I think it's fairly close to being screen accurate. Does that count? Also, I used some historical techniques while making it, like padding and boning and taking a dart in the lining that isn't in the fashion fabric.
Hours to complete: I started on the 20th with a mock-up, so it's been about 8 days of a few hours most days.
First worn: Not yet, but the finished product will be out and about on Halloween
Total cost: Maybe around $10?
And the inside, which I think is really interesting. You can see all the boning and padding and handsewing. Also, using my new green silk-cotton as a background.
