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.


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.
