I'm quite new to craftster and I became SO inspired to make something cute to wear that I went out and bought a sewing machine!  Great idea in theory until I decided to make a shirt from a skirt that no longer fit properly...well lets just say I butchered the poor cute skirt that I probably could have worn again as soon as I lose 10 more lbs...anyway, I was wondering if you have any ideas on patterns, and tutorials that are good for a beginner and that are flowy tops...I like tank top/spaghetti strap shirts that flow down and hide my tummy.  Ideas??

oooohhh...what kind of a sewing machine did you buy?  Sorry, totally off point.  Congradulations on your first learning experience.  I have had many, don't worry, most of us have.  (hence the stitch and botch threads)  If you are looking for the clothing tutorials they are located up in the regular clothing board.  I don't think we have one here yet. 
as for an easy pattern for a flowy spagetti strap top how about this one.

It looks nice and fitted at the top and then flowy over all the issue areas.

I always like re-fashioning stuff for practice. Adding bands to the bottom of shirts, re-doing necklines etc. Circle skirts are good, as are a-lines, pencil skirts are good for getting the measuring stuff down. If you like flowing stuff, maybe try one of the smock tops? Basically a rectangle with a band at the top and some straps.
