I'm new here. I ran across this board somehow, but its great. All kinds of new tips.
I've been sewing for less than a year since I picked up an all-metal (heavy) Kenmore sewing machine at a garage sale. I'd seen a dress on the internet that I thought was absolutely gorgeous but was unwilling to pay 2000 dollars for it. I decided to learn to sew and make it myself by combining some various patterns. (I was told by a decent seamstress that the dress I liked is challenging, but I didn't listen) I'm learning and it is exciting. Now I scavange garage sales looking for fabric and have run out of places to put it!
My dream dress is actually sold as a wedding dress, but instead I'll make it into a ballgown with a green brocade (that is unless I find a fiancee ). Maybe I'll be asking for some help on my little project. There are so many talented people here.
Nice to meet you all.

Welcome to the group Fabric Addict. Ask away-you'll find lots of folks with great answers for you here. Would love to see the dress when you finish it-it sounds beautiful.
