wow! thanks guys for your nice comments.
I actually majored apparel design for my master's degree..but I mostly studied the basic patternmaking by myself when I was in undergrad majoring computer science. Grin You can learn how to make patterns through any book about basic pattern making principles. Usually new books about patternmaking are very expensive. But you don't have to buy a new one. I studied basics with an old book published in 80's. Wink


And yes, dolphin24212..Beadi ng took as much time as making the dress! But I think it was worth spending that much time..

What a beautiful dress!  You have a body type just like mine, and you're right - we SO need shaping.  I'm just starting to mess around with pattern drafting, mostly easy stuff, like altering an existing pattern to fit me better.  I'm drafting a new historical coat for the Historical Park I work for though, so that's kind of fun!

Way to go, tiamatfire! Altering exsisting pattern is a good way to start.
I also did that at first, and then moved onto drawing all from the scratch.
