25 reasons we’re naming Sansa Stark the Queen in the North

10. She can make her own clothes

The costumes in Game of Thrones are nothing short of spectacular. Designer Michele Clapton led the way for Seasons 1 through 5, with April Ferry taking over for Season 6. And Sansa wears her wardrobe quite well, even making a majority of her own gorgeous gowns.

Each region in Westeros has its very own sense of style. Since Sansa is something of an expert seamstress, to see her wardrobe shift from place to place shows a great sense of adaptability. It’s a highly important skill to hone in an ever-changing world. The scene featured, from Season 6’s “The Door” shows just how far Sansa’s embroidery skills have developed. That gorgeous Stark direwolf on her dress? Yeah, she crafted that herself. She also makes a beautiful cloak for Jon, complete with the same direwolf sigil their father wore (or Jon’s uncle, however you see Ned is your call). It means she sees him as a true Stark as well, and now he’s got the clothing to prove it. It’s also a nice gesture when anyone receives a homemade gift.

With costume significance aside, it’s also very important that Sansa knows how to sew. She’ll be able to make cloaks for herself that’ll help keep her warm during the long winter that’s descending on Westeros.
