Separates. 4-H Textile Science Advanced Project.
Scholl, Jan F.
This booklet, which was developed for use by 4-H club members in Pennsylvania, contains the information required to sew a two-piece nontailored outfit and/or a one-or two-piece dress. The following are among the topics covered: the difference between a fiber and a fabric; properties of different fibers and fabrics; common jacket, neckline, sleeve, dress, and skirt styles; ways of reducing bulk and handling ease when sewing seams; the importance of clipping and notching when using a sewing pattern to cut and sew garments; the concept of nap and the procedure for laying out one-way designs; tips on matching striped and plaid fabrics; and miscellaneous sewing hints. Also included are spaces for 4-H club members to recount their completion of the sewing project and record the following: things they learned during the sewing project; project-related information shared with others; and the item, fiber content, cost of each garment made, and the time required to make it. Concluding the booklet is a section on helping other 4-H members and building leadership skills and information about other sewing-related projects available through student's local extension office or 4-H chapter.
