I just cut out my first shirt pattern- Colette Pattern's Sorbetto. A few people recommended this as a starter project. I pinned it up to my dress form and it kinda looks like a shirt. Now, I need to convince myself that I can sew it. Frightening.

I am brand new to the world of sewing and have great expectations and dreams of being able to make all of my own clothing. Regrettably, I am having a very hard time getting the hang of it. Can anyone recommend any starter projects? I have a bunch of dress patterns from the 1950's that I can't wait to make, but I don't want to ruin them until I feel comfortable. Any suggestions would be amazing. Thanks!
