Sewing - Still a beginner

When I was sewing for my daughter I was churning out stuff so quick. I was new and was willing to try various things and fail several times. For some reason now that I've progressed to sew
for myself I want to know ways and to perfect things. I'm taking several online courses. There is so much I want to do and so little that I'm able to.
To think of it I still don't know most basic stuff, I've a long way before I can come up with something decent for myself.
Sewing Learning basic techniques

Here is my to do list.

1. Draft a sleeveless blouse from the basic bodice for myself.  I'm on the way. I've a good moulage I made for myself so Ithink I should be able to do this one.

2. Draft a skirt sloper.I'm wearing a lot of skirts these days.. Bought so many from I'm loving them. So I thought why not try sewing them for the summer.

3. Invisible zipper on waist with waistband. Haven't found a good tutorial yet on this. The best and most logical tutorial for the zipper on back from neck facing is this from fashion incubator - Such beautifully calculated for the fold of the fabric. I'd do it slightly differenlty though, instead of a different pattern piece, I'd just move the facing pattern slightly right to compensate for the fold of the main fabric.

Enjoy your week!
