I'll ask one more question, just because the normal post requirement to start a thread is three.
So, I'm starting to learn how to sew. I have a few hundred dollars that I can drop on materials right now. What kind of cloth and what kind of designs should I be focusing on if I'm trying to learn how to make cosplay dresses and capes and stuff? Specifically, I'm trying to get the skills so I can eventually make a genderbent Lina Inverse cosplay.
