Nice to meet you too! Isn't it wonderful to have internet? Yes I agree that it's difficult to start making your first project because you have so many doubts and so little knowledge. If you really feel motivated to learn how to sew though there's no time like the present! I myself spent many years wishing I could make costume and it was only until I met other people who cosplayed did I actually get off my behind to start my own projects.
I look forward to seeing your cosplays (bought or commissioned or made yourself)!
