Sewing advice

Mum's been re-teaching me to sew over the last year, starting with two stripy bags, then more recently I've made sock monsters and finally, I've hemmed some pants (three in fact!).

The pants were done on my new (old) machine - one Mum found on Ebay. It's so exciting to think of all the things I could make.

Opshopping with friends this week, I found some great navy and white spotty material for less than $2, and I instantly thought of making a skirt. I just need a very basic pattern.

Do you guys know any good sewing sites? The only ones I know of are BurdaStyle and maybe PurlBee. I'd like a modern, but simple A-line pattern to start with.

Any ideas?
