2D Sketch from part in drawing

I'm using SW2008.
I have a 2D sketch defined in a part which I would like to display in a drawing.
It probably should have been a drawing from the start, but I made a 2D sketch in a part because I wanted to reference geometry in another part (so they started out in an assembly).
Can I create a drawing from my "sketch-part", or do I have to start again and go straight from the part I want to refer to into a solidworks drawing? If so, I also have to import & overlay a DXF into the same drawing.
