That's a real inspiration. Especially:
If you want to make a dress for yourself, I have some practical advice: get the right cut for your body. Women’s dresses often have waist seams and bust seams that accentuate a female figure. If you want to accentuate your V-shape, you’ll need to space the shoulder seams further out, and the waist seam probably needs to go down a couple of inches.
This nails what I sort of knew but couldn't quite figure out. Those dresses, especially the second and third ones, are what I'm trying to achieve. He also gives some more tips here.

Really, really nice!

There are more and more articles like this appearing in conjunction with the fashion world now pushing gender fluidity. There have been a few interesting articles featuring Harris Reed over the last few days for example. I do get the feeling that with the rise of generation Z , the days of gendered fashion is numbered. Of course, the fashion industry will look at this in terms of profit, since if they can even entice 10% of men to become interested in wearing skirts and dresses, that is huge for them. Not all men will be interested in wearing skirts and dresses, but that is to be expected, but what I do expect is to start seeing more of it, especially once we emerge from the pandemic.

Ha Ha, we are what we are and I am just enjoying getting old as disgracefully as I can.

That was a great article I enjoyed reading. This gentleman knows what he's talking about.
I don't want to LOOK like a woman, I just want to DRESS like a woman.
