This was my version of a Sansa dress.  It isn't any one specific gown from the show, but rather something I came up with based on what she wears and how the dresses are patterned.  
I started with McCall's 4491 costume pattern as a base.  I modified it like crazy by adding seams, making the back closed, changing the neckline, making my own sleeves, and making the front a robe style front instead of solid.  It was a good starting point for my own idea.  The skirt was lengthened by 3" to accommodate my long legs (I'm 5'7"), otherwise it would have been way too short.
The front and the sleeves are trimmed in a burgundy piping to coordinate with the dress fabric.  It has a scarf that goes along the bust-line and down, as well as a petti-skirt for body.
The Scarf is just one long piece of shantung that goes to the floor and simply drapes around the neck.  It is pleated the whole way down for a cleaner look.  
The pettiskirt took me 30 minutes to make.  It's a 3 yard long rectangle that is the length of my waist to floor (42" in my case).  The top edge was gathered and then sewn into a waistband.  It closes in the back with a hook and eye.  The bottom edge is simply serged to keep it from fraying.
The little bees are a stand in until I can find nice enough dragonflies, or make my own.
