    Try The Purl Bee dotcom. There's lots of easy stuff in the sewing section for those just starting out..blankets and sundresses and bloomers etc.

    I love to sew clothes for DD. That dress you like looks very cute, but might not be the easiest choice for a beginner.

    What bit are you stuck on?

    The dress looks adorable, looking forward to seeing the finished products. I really enjoy sewing but am pretty average. Also my problem is that i am always trying to take shortcuts or attempting sewing clothes which are way too advanced for my level hence have many half finished projects. I have a whole stash of fabrics too. Now that i have dd and ds would really love to make things for them when they are a bit older and i have some free time. Sewing takes me aaages!!!

    I literally cannot sew a button. My interest in sewing is growing though, I would love to be able to makeMy DD pretty little sundresses. Is sewing something that can be self taught?
