I recommend the "It's So Easy" patterns (a lot of pattern-makers have them under different names) to start off! They're more detailed with the instructions and terminology, so they're good for beginning pattern reading. If you wanting to jump into something complicated, buy muslin fabric to make mock-ups and to practice sewing with. That way you'll have practice for doing it on your real fabric and if you mess up, it's not a big deal. Muslin is also good for checking the fit of a costume before making it.
