Dresses, Skirts And Sewing

The subject matter may seem unusual for a male to talk about.A couple of weeks ago I was reading a blog(it's mostly about her sewing) and in a posting she said "I think I would find it quite amusing if any gentleman was reading a sewing blog".The quote got me thinking about my view of sewing and feminine clothing.

In the past I've watched shows like Little House on the Prairie and read books(with pictures) on the Amish and pioneer times.Though I enjoyed seeing the females wearing dresses,it wasn't something I thought too much about.I also liked female characters who were tomboys and wore jeans.

My view began to change when I discovered the YLCF last October.From there I found blogs and websites that discussed modesty,feminine clothing and other topics.One of the early blogs I found was Later on,I found some other blogs of people who make their own clothing for reenacting.Between Anna and Miriam's old-fashioned dresses and the Jane Austen movies,I came to appreciate females wearing dresses and skirts.It's funny how I now go outside and notice all the pants that are being worn.

Though males won't be interested in the techiques of sewing,I think it's important for them to appreciate the clothing made.Than they will prefer to see females wearing feminine clothing.
