That looks great! Also you are the first person to upload a picture on my request, so thanks for that too :D
I know you mentioned in the other description that you had not yet done a head section, and if you do, what have you got planned for that? A hood or something?
There's something I love about scale armour, like maille, it is so versatile. Plus, if you ever try different styles of armour, they could look great as extra layers over the top of that.
I look forward to seeing the finished result.

I have only a brief idea for the head at the moment. If time and skill allows it, it would be a lightweight dragon head (wire)frame covered with the dragonscale as "skin", maybe in a way, than the jaw could be opened for a helmet effect.
If too troublesome, I could imagine working with a molded head form and glue the scales to it, but I want to stick to pure weaving as long as possible, as it's easier to apply fixes or re-design.
Also, at the end this should be just one piece with magnetic zipper/buttons.

Looks like you'll be protected from any dragons that come your way. That must have taken ages to make, I love the sheen it has

I would rather drink a beer (or whathever they may drink) with a dragon than fighting one ;D
Well, at the end this will be both dragon armor and costume. Still working on piece connection, weight / stress management and, at the end, more dragon specific details / decoration.

Sounds like it'll be interesting, the craftsmanship behind that sort of thing really fascinates me
