I've been sewing for years. I started out to slip cover furniture, but had to learn to sew a straight line first. I really enjoyed what I did, so I kept it up. I took a class to learn to read patterns. I hated making shirts until I read Coffin's book--that really helps. Finally, I took the tailoring classes at the local community college. They wanted to put me in "how to run a sewing machine' class, until I brought in some of the stuff I had made.
Do what you want to do!
BTW, I am also a registered nurse--so I'm way out on the sexual stereotype limb. Who cares what others think?
How about getting people to think more rationally? Not stereotyping people by gender, race, national origin, religion, age? Let everyone follow his or her own interests and talents and develop them as we each wish to do. No more pigeonholes!!!
