First Year Students-Competency 12 Review

Proportion is described as the relationship of the spaces within apparel to one another and to the total look of the item.

Hues are included in the color element of design.

A horizontal line conveys the illusion of a shorter, wider look in apparel design.

Progression is a series of color from very light to very dark.

A shade is created by darkening a color with black.

Secondary colors are a good example of triad color harmony.

The primary colors are red, blue, and yellow.

The secondary colors are green, orange, and violet.

When choosing apparel that is in proportion or scale, a large-framed person should wear big collars.

A shirt with an off-center closing and one pocket to the side is an example of asymmetrical balance.

Texture describes the look and feel of a fabric.

Emphasis is the focal point of a garment or outfit.

Diagonal lines add the most excitement and movement to a garment.

Large patterns in a fabric patten tend to make the wearer look larger.

Apparel with a side front wrap illustrates asymmetrical balance.

Brightness describes the intensity of a color.

One primary color plus one secondary color make a tertiary color.

Ruffles are an accent that can add softness to a garment.
