It's a skill that I'd love to have actually. I'm thinking from more of a utilitarian angle than from a fashion design aspect. Though I think it'd be cool as hell to be able to make a shirt or jacket for instance rather than shopping around for stuff that fits me right and that I like, etc. Not to mention that I'm involved in a lot of Living history/reenacting type stuff where the price of period-correct clothing can be murderous... It seems like it may be a really hard thing to master though given that I don't even know how to operate a sewing machine...(nor even own one!) Anyone here into clothing making..? If so, how would one go about learning the ins and outs?
