I look at this and.. Well I DO love it. But it's a bit weird still. But in a way I like Wink I draw patterns from a magazine, then did a major makeover on them with my mannequin (I first made a dress from skrap fabric and then put it on my mannequin, made all the changes on it and used it as a pattern). I added darts or something in the back (are they called darts when they're 25cm long? Grin) and took it in for like 10 cm or something. And I added a ruffle in the bottom of the hem Smiley

Cute dress!  I have a pattern that is similar to that, and I even made it up in a wool plaid.  The thumbnail picture reminded me of my dress. 
and yeah they are still called darts when they are that long Smiley

You were draping and yes that is a lot of fun. Good job!

i thought it was only called draping when the end result reminds you of a toga Grin (i've watched project runway and fashion show religeously)
