Welcome to the 4-H Clothing project! You are about to begin or to continue your interest in a project which we hope you will find helpful and that you will enjoy. By the time you have finished the clothing project cycle you will have learned more about clothing care and wardrobe planning. You will have learned to be a better clothing shopper. Good grooming will become more important to you because you will want to be your own best exhibit. Sewing is part of the project. This will be fun because you will learn to make some article of clothing for yourself or family member to wear. Part of the project is to share with others the things you have learned. This, you will have a chance to do when you give a talk or a demonstration. When you wear a garment you have made or selected for others to see and admire you will be sharing, too. Your interests will be different depending upon your age and experience. This bulletin is divided into four sections. One for you younger girls who are just starting, out in the clothing project; one for those of you who are in the intermediate group with some experience; and one for you more advanced girls who are in the older age group and who are interested in wardrobe planning and perhaps more difficult construction. The last section on Care of Clothing applies to all age groups.
