shade n shadow-- How did you learn to draft your own patterns and could you share some tips?

My goal is to eventually know how to make all of my own clothes but I'm still working on how to make my own patterns that fit exactly to my measurements.

Thanks.

I've taken a fashion design class at my local community college.  Before I took the class, I had my mom get me this book as a Christmas gift.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0321034236/qid=1095789813/sr=ka-1/ref=pd_ka_1/104-3687673-5985552  It's pricey, but it IS a textbook and it happened to be the exact book we used for the class.  You could use the book without the class because the class just basically went through the book and had us following that to make our own slopers.  Once you have a well fitting sloper, you can make anything you want.

Are you near completing the rag skirt pattern? Don't mean to sound rude but would love to know how to make it and some of the links didn't work. If you have any spare time would also love to know how to make a skirt like the bottom of half (don't mind how top of skirt done) this:
