    The theatre program I was a part of had us practice in various activities both on and off stage. During one show I was assigned to help make costumes. After I broke the sewing machine twice I was delegated to much simpler tasks like collecting stick pins for the other costume makers. On all shows after that they had me doing things like building sets or hanging lights and didn't let me anywhere near the costumes.


    BTW, the title of this thread is a play on words. I don't know if it's intentional, but it's funny.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I used to work as a fashion designer and while I buy most of my clothes in stores, I still have a thingie for tailormade trousers. Here's a pic of the last pair I made. I'm at your service as well if you need help with your project.

    That'd be cool! I may not have the skill to pull it off, but I'm still very interested in how it is done.

    To be honest, I actually would love to learn to sew. I have some great ideas for fetish clothing designs. And I've actually considered becoming a fashion designer more than once.

    I wouldn't be ashamed if I liked knitting, either, but it just doesn't interest me as much.

    I just moved so my old patterncutting files stand in cardboard boxes in a garage. I was thinking about making a pattern cutting thread once I get things sorted out - it could be fun to refresh my old skills. You use your individual measurements to create a 3D map over your body - it's actually quite fashinating.

    I think many men would enjoy fashion design. Theoretically, I don't perceive it as different than being and architect, a furniture designer etc. the designdevelopment process is the same, you work with shape, color and structure but instead of concrete, wood etc. - you work with fabric.

    Yeah, I think that fashion design is actually a very NT field at heart. Most people will dismiss it as an SP field because they don't perceive it as an "intellectual" field like architecture, but I've given up on Keirsey and his cronies long ago. I think fashion design fits right into the description of the ENTP "Inventor" in Please Understand Me II.

    It's a tough field despite what many would think. My last roommate was working on a fashion design major, and I have never seen anyone work so hard. Supposedly, her projects were placed under the kind of expectations the outside world would impose. It was fairly interesting to see what was involved. (Mostly it was a ton of illustrations and swatches before the final prototype was made.)
