If you are patient and get a good book on basic sewing and start with a basic pattern you can probably teach yourself to sew, but you will probably learn faster and better if a sewer teaches you. One thing about fashion designers is that most of them never sew. A couture outfit can take months to make.

JJohnson: if u know how to make a good pattern it won t take u long, same thing for sewing it. but it does seem like there s different pieces (am not too sure) so u have to be careful to get them right and for the bow on the hip and the flower on the shoulders those 2 pieces will have to be made separately obviously then sewn to the rest of the garment. imo, those r the only pieces u might have trouble with, but overall it s not too hard to make. so good luck to u and show us the result if u do make it.

Cool
Thanks a lot you guys. I really did not plan on sewing that garment, but I want to go to fashion school for that. I do not know how to sew, but I am going to learn and I also want to be a couturer. I wonder if Parsons School of Design will accept me? Must one know how to sew and make professional garments already to be able to come there?

arent there instructions that come with the download?

i have a pattern offline with 4 attachments two used for A4 printing and the other for specialised printing where you can take it to a certain printers and get it done for you!? unless i have a different pattern from a different website!

anyways hopes that is some sort of a help

No, same pattern. I was just trying to print it off my home printer. The directions don't corespond with what comes up when I tell it to print. So 1 attachment prints the size of the paper so its only like barbie size. I know I need to tile it but cant figure out how to do it. I printed of pattens before and it work, but I just got a new computer so everthing is different. Maybe i will jusst go to Kinkos and hope it doesn't cost much to have them print it.

my most recent sewing project, a cotton woven-plaid, box-pleated skirt made from about four yards of material, trimmed with gold rick-rack trim. I'm loving my rick-rack trimming - it's such an underrated detail and not really seen much these days, but I think it's cute.

sorry the picture quality isn't great...I'm still trying to figure out my new camera.
