  • keep in mind the nonverbal message your clothing
    is sending to others

Determine factors that affect clothing selections
  • Quality
  • Are all stitches straight and even?
  • Are seam edges finished to prevent raveling?
  • Is the fabric cut with the grain?
  • Are plaids, stripes, and large designs matched at
    the seams?
  • Are points of strain reinforced?
  • Are interfacings used for proper shape?
  • Do buttonholes appear sturdy and free of raveling?

Determine factors that affect clothing selections
  • Quality, continued
  • Are zippers inserted neatly, and do they work
  • Are buttons and accessories suitable for garment?
  • Are the seam allowances and hems wide enough for
    future adjustments?
  • Are the hemming stitches inconspicuous on the
    right side of the garments?

Determine factors that affect clothing selections
  • Clothing Care
  • Proper care of clothes helps assure a neat
    personal appearance.
  • Take care not to damage or soil your clothing
  • Open fasteners so that clothing slips off easily
    without putting strain on any part of the
  • Launder properly

  • Read labels
  • contain correct procedures for regular
  • required by Federal law
  • Sort clothes
  • Done to prevent damage to other clothing articles
  • Sort by color, fabric, surface texture and degree
    of soil
  • Prepare clothes for laundering
  • Remove excess soil
  • Check pockets
  • Fasten fasteners
  • mend any rips to prevent them from becoming
  • Pre-treat stains and heavy soil
  • treat promptly
  • rinse from the back side to push stain out
  • test products on underside of hem or facing to
    prevent discoloration

Laundry Techniques
  • Laundry Products
  • Soap--are made with fats
  • react with the mineral in hard water
  • form white cloudy curds which float through
  • these curds cling to fabrics making clothing look
    dull and dingy
  • Detergents--petroleum products
  • may be low sudsing or high sudsing
  • easier to get brighter wash than by using soap
  • dont use on wool--digests protein in wool
  • Chlorine bleach--used to remove stains in whites
    and to disinfect
  • can cause damage if poured directly on fabric

Laundry Techniques
  • Oxygen bleach--removes stains and whitens clothes
    through use of ultraviolet dyes
  • safe for all washable fibers
  • should be used regularly to keep clothes white
    and bright
  • Water softeners--neutralize calcium and magnesium
    ions found in hard water
  • a ring around the bathtub or sink after water is
    drained is a sign of hard water
  • water softener keeps clothes from looking dull
    and gray
  • softener may be added before the soap or
    detergent is added
  • Fabric Softeners--makes fabrics soft and fluffy
  • helps control wrinkling
  • controls static electricity
  • can be a liquid used in rinse cycle or sheet
    added to dryer
  • read infants clothing before adding/can change
    flammability rating

Laundry Techniques
  • Using washing machine
  • distribute items evenly for good cleaning action
  • dont overfill
  • select a wash cycle suitable for the wash load
  • select temperatures that will accommodate all
    articles in wash
  • Using dryer
  • items can be dried on line
  • not recommended in smoggy areas
  • suitable method of most fabrics/may need to iron
  • Drying flat--reduces stretching and prevents
  • Tumble drying--gas or electric dryers
  • permanent press--moderate heat to reduce wrinkles
  • regular cycle--for items not heat sensitive
  • air fluff--used to freshen items

Laundry Techniques, continued.
  • Ironing--a process of moving an iron across
    fabric to smooth wrinkles.
  • Done after a garment has been laundered
  • Pressing--a process of lifting the iron up and
    down to apply pressure in one area of a garment
    at a time.
  • Pressing is done as you sew to mold a garment to
    fit the curves of your body
  • Done to touch up areas of garments after they
    have been laundered

Laundering Techniques, continued.
  • Pressing rules
  • use proper setting for fabric type to prevent
    scorching or melting
  • test on underside if not certain of proper
  • iron along the lengthwise grain of fabric to keep
    from stretching garment out of shape
  • use a pressing cloth on wool, velvet or any other
    fabric that might develop a shine.

Laundering Techniques, continued
  • Dry Cleaning
  • used for delicate items
  • tell dry cleaner about stains and spots so they
    can pre-treat
  • can request that sizing be added to a limp
  • water repellent can be restored (only recommended
    method of cleaning of water repellent items)
  • specific technique required for cleaning leather
    (can be costly)
  • need to consider cost of cleaning method before
    buying clothing because cleaning method adds to
    final cost of garment

4.3 Describe ways to create special effects in
clothing selection by using the elements and
principles of design
  • Elements of Design
  • Vertical lines--make the body seem taller

    appear shorter, narrower or smaller.
  • Emphasis--is the point of interest that your eyes
    see first. Use to draw attention to your best
  • Harmony--the feeling that all parts of a design
    belong together
  • must have something in common such as style,
    shape, color or size.

clothing selection by using the elements and
principles of design

    detail or its size compared to other details
  • small prints for small person
  • larger prints for larger person

4.4 List the factors to consider in evaluating a
garment according to basic construction techniques
