Exclamation Help! Daenerys cosplay- how to sew/put together pieces of outfit

I am planning on making one of Daenerys Targaryen's Qarth outfits from the HBO series. I am having a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to put together/make a pattern for her top. I am a beginner at sewing, so this is a little more complicated than anything I have done. I am also wondering if anyone could give me tips or a tutorial on how to make and put together the golden chest/back piece that goes over the top.

Any tutorials, patterns, or tips are MUCH appreciated!

Look for dress patterns that have the same shape through the bodice, the fitted sections as well as the neck line are the most important thing to look for. Cutting out the skirt panels to create that tunic instead is the easy part.

As to the gold.... That's an entirely different ball game, I'd post about that specific part in the armor & accessories forum instead as I think those are the materials & techniques needed as opposed to the fabric & thread focus in this section.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
