Course Overview

Clothing 1 is a beginners-level course for students to develop knowledge and

understanding of textiles, fashions, and fabrics; in addition, this course will
assist them in basic sewing skills. Broad areas of emphasis include pattern
selection, operating sewing equipment, interpreting pattern instructions, and
choosing appropriate fabrics for different patterns and projects. Each student
will complete four required sewing projects during the semester. All four
projects must be completed in order to receive credit for the course.
*Cost of fabric for all four projects constructed in class will be approximately
$50, depending on the quality selected.
