    Any seamstresses about?

    I keep meaning to learn how to sew. Does anyone here know any good online tutorials for basic techniques and sewing projects? Or does anyone have some advice for someone starting out with making their own clothes?
    I am looking more for tutorials on how to actually make rather than customise, but any advice would be good.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm sure there will be patterns for dresses on there somewhere

    Hmm more about customising I think, but one of the girls on the website the previous poster just posted has her own website; http://ohmystars.net/craft/index.htm
    It might be quite useful for details, etc.
