Thanks everyone, you guys are the best!  I am in the process of fidgeting with the draftings.  It is simultaneously encouraging and frustrating. Tongue  but of course, nothing beats learning something new "on your own!" Grin Thanks again for the tips and encouragement fellow crafters.

soyGitana: the book I used is entitled: Dorothy Moore's Pattern Drafting
you can probably locate one on ebay for a decent price.

i think it would look good as a cropped jacket, and it does look very professional looking. was drafting it hard?

It was relatively simple, the only thing is that I abhor following instructions...which makes it a tough process for me. Tongue

Oooh, I have that book too!  I've made a few skirt patterns, but have never ventured into bodiceville.  You are very inspirational, perhaps I will try my hand at a top or dress!

ps --  On the topic of the book . . . this is a good one.  Dorothy Moore is a home sewer, so her instructions are geared towards the intermediate, not expert, seamstress.  It also includes an (albeit crappy cardboard) hip curve and triangle.

I think that's a great job for a first time drafter. It looks like it fits you very well for the most part and it also looks well sewn. Maybe it could be a bolero jacket? I really love drafting, except I am confined into using the books only available at school. I really must get my own.

Thank you peskymac, lupinbunny , Rowdy Vamp Raquel,  and cleandirty!

Rowdy Vamp Raquel: you should get your own books, since you will be the one buying them, they will reflect your taste much more than something someone else picked!

lupinbunny: I kinda guestimated the length, because I was too lazy to measure...;p I know, I know, shame on me! Cheesy

oh...here is a top I made from altering the basic top pattern.


the bottom is pretty much just pinned on fabric :p

Very cute.  You are awesome at this and you must be a very talented sewer as well.  Great job.
