Sew for Others
This intermediate project is for members of all ages with some experience in clothing construction. Construct one complete outfit for the person of your choice or adapt three different garments for a disabled or handicapped person. Analyze coloring, figure type, size, and preferences of the “other.” Compare styles, colors, fabrics, workmanship, cost, and special features of ready-to-wear outfits with the outfit constructed for the other. Do at least one leadership/citizenship activity. If this project is repeated, a different category of “others” should be selected each time. ©2000.
