When I began thinking about starting my honors project, I came up with several ideas but the one that interested me most was the making of a tailored garment. My major is home economics so I thought this would be a good experience for me and a good time to learn something new. I liked the idea that I could work on my own and at my own speed, and could make appointments with Mrs. Elledge when convenient for both of us.
I have made garments before but I've never taken on such a large project or as detailed as this one. My plans were to make a tailored suit made up of a jacket and slacks, a kind of outfit I knew I needed.
