great idea, awsome tute and super cute apron! i especially love how you did the neck tie, i've never seen that style before.

now if someone could just tell me how to turn an apron pattern into a dress i'd be in heaven. i keep seeing all these really cute aprons that i would totally wear if they were dresses

I do all my own patternmaking, so I will have to look into doing something like that in the future Smiley

let me know if you figure out something that works.

i've started getting into pattern altering and splicing patterns together a bit but i still have no idea how to draft a full pattern. if i found the right dress pattern with a universal-looking back i could probably make it work, but i'm sure it would still be a lot of work figuring it all out and it hasn't been high enough on my crafty priority list to sit down and do it yet.

It's not cheap but if you want to learn how to draft a pattern from scratch I suggest the book Patternmaking for Fashion Design: http://www.amazon.com/Patternmaking-Fashion-Design-5th-Edition/dp/0136069347/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358393753&sr=8-1&keywords=patternmaking+for+fashion+design... I bought it while in college for fashion Smiley

Thanks......at that price I think I may have to see if the library has that one before I commit to buying lol. I just wish I could find a class on pattern drafting without having to enroll in fashion school. I have a feeling I'm going to end up doing a lot of things wrong or not understanding it at all if I go from a book.

Does that book use a draping method or a flat drafting method? and which method do you think works better? these are the kind of things i get lost about when i start looking into books and stuff on pattern drafting

Flat Pattern Method for draping I use the book: Draping for Apparel Design: http://www.textbooks.com/BooksDescription.php?BKN=803117&SBC=HC1&network=GoogleShopping&tracking_id=9781563675508U&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=9781563675508U&utm_source=googleshopping&kenshu=1076abae-52a7-a3a8-3af4-00006c0f4875&adtype=pla&kw={keyword}&gclid=CNXm3v2-mLUCFWaoPAodOXUAug
