So I've been quilting and sewing for quite a while now. Ive made a pet bed, 4 quilts and a purse. I found a pattern for a 50s era dress that I just HAD to have. The only problem is I've never made clothes. I also have only used a pattern twice in my entire life. The first time was in middle school home ec. I made pants...they ended up as capris because I did it wrong. I picked up this pattern took one look at it and I hit a wall. I'm afraid I'm gonna screw it up. I'm too scared to buy the fabric. Anyone have this happen? Any words of encouragement? I'm gonna force myself to the fabric store tomorrow and pray someone can help me read the dang thing.
