How do you use those free patterns? Do you print them out and tape them together?
Pretty much... This one in particular has a fab tutorial on Dixie's blog which gives step-by-step instructions with plenty of pictures.

Beautiful! your tailoring is amazing. I am fairly new to sewing, less than a year but have sewn a few skirts, put in a zipper here and there but that's about it. Do you think this is a good beginner project?

If you follow Dixie's tutorial on her blog (the link is in my original post), it's pretty straight forward. I did however mess up in a couple of places - I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to make the bodice how she did it, so I winged it and am happy to live with ugly unfinished seams on the inside of my dress. However, I seriously advise using a heavier weight jersey than I did with a little more substance to it. Mine was so flimsy, and yet so heavy because I made my dress full length, that it stretched a lot whilst putting it together.
