The fist unit in the ?4-H Clothing Project Series? helps students develop basic knowledge about a broad spectrum of topics related to clothing and sewing. The basic science of color is introduced and broadened into color use and color effects in clothing. Design lines as related to fabric design, trims, seams, darts, and gatherings are explored. Clothing choice is introduced based on students? personal ?likes? or preferences, as well as needs. Fabrics are explored in terms of basic science, make-up, weave and finish. A longer chapter titled ?Creative Sewing? helps participants apply their new found knowledge with basic sewing skills in several step-by-step projects. Sewing machines, sewing tools use, hand sewing, sewing with and without patterns, body measurements, cutting, marking, and pressing are all covered. Clothing care, clothing safety, and personal pointers round out this wonderful curriculum.
