Hello all.

Im new here.

I just created my first ever garment. Well, completed garment. I tried in high school and failed miserably.

Anyway, my friend needed a costume and with a few meters of material and some general idea of how to make a dress (without a pattern and any experience) I created this Cleopatra costume for my friend Emma (who doesn't want her face on the internet). I also made a very big mess. lol.  





(It wont let me post photos until i've posted 10 times on the boards. so i would appreciate it if people cut and paste!)



Needless to say, I have discovered that i love sewing and enjoy it lots. I went out a bought a couple of easy to make patterns and im going to give them a shot.

I should be around here for a long while now. Cheesy Everyone seems to make so many amazing things.

-Nicole

ps. any suggestions etc would be great for next time. or suggestions of things to make that are easy and i cant totally mess up so i can practice.
