Have you been to Seamingly Smitten (why of course you have - they're a sponsor and all....). They offer sewing patterns for beginners. Info from them:
Want to learn to sew? Want to make something for your little one today? We can help! Our sewing patterns are:
*easy to follow

These sewing patterns can be saved to your computer and printed again and again. You can make the outfit in any size on the pattern at any time.
If the pattern has pattern pieces we show you how to assemble the pages (usually 2 pages are taped together then you begin cutting).
Most patterns use rectangles and squares and dimensions are clearly displayed.
