The 8 chapters in this project book begin with discovering how line, color, and texture can keep you ?Looking Good?. You?ll learn to successfully coordinate the outfits and accessories you wear. Whether you are buying or making clothes, the challenges in the ?Choosing Clothes? and ?Learning about Fabrics? chapters is to develop your consumer decision making skills. You?ll learn to make a wardrobe plan, and to evaluate the clothing choices you make. In the chapters about ?Creative Sewing? and ?Caring for Clothes?, your challenge is to grow in creativity, independence, and responsibility. In ?You and Others?, the challenge shifts to get beyond yourself and find how clothes affect your relationship with others.
