GUEST,Bee BS: 'Cross dressing' - a form of sexism? (83* d) RE: BS: 'Cross dressing' - a form of sexism? 06 Aug 06


I bought a simple sewing machine ten years ago, having never used one before, taught myself to sew - it's pretty easy! I make most of my own shirts, light jackets and accessories. Jeans I still purchase, as they are the one article of womens clothing made in a sufficient range of sizes and fits for most women. However, I am amply endowed, chestwise, and the kinds of ugly crap available for upper wear for those of us with 'Big-uns' - well, I ain't wearin' it.

I was lucky enough to end up making costumes for a local museum, and was taught how to make, size and alter patterns. The fit of my clothing now is just for me, and the fabrics are pretty and good quality.

Of course, now I'm a fabric hoarder, just so you are warned of the downside to sewing your own. ;-)
