Fabric Swatches & Pattern Form 2017

CLOTHING CATEGORIES

  • Traditional - features garments the participant has constructed, showcasing sewing skills and the ability to coordinate an outfit. The entry must be sewn by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing and Textiles project. The outfit must contain at least one constructed garment; participants are encouraged to construct additional garments to complete the outfit. (No change from 2016)
  • Consumer Science Purchased - $40.00  for the entire outfit, includes shoes but not sales tax. Receipts from the current 4-H year are required for any item that is visible. Gifts, prior purchases, and items without receipts are not eligible for this category. Receipts from yard sales, etc. may be hand written. The member should consider value vs. cost, versatility, the shopping experience, and coordination of the outfit within the cost limit. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category. (Note addition of category criteria)
  • Upcycled – take one or more existing garments and turn them into a new, different, and wearable garment. Additional fabrics, trim and supplies may be used during the construction process. The upcycled garment must be sewn by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing & Textiles project. Additional upcycled and/or sewn garments are encouraged to complete the outfit. A “before” photograph showing the original garment(s) is required. This is not an alteration - such as a large dress taken in to fit a smaller person that still retains the same lines. It is where the garment has been cut apart and remade into a new garment that looks different. The emphasis is on the transition of the garment. The outfit entered in the Upcycled category must include an accessory of your choice, handmade by the participant. (No change from 2016)
  • Stripe/Print/Plaid Challenge– Choose any two of the three fabric designs (stripe, print, and plaid) and incorporate them into one or more sewn garments. If one garment is sewn, it must include 2 of the 3 choices (ex: a shirt containing print and plaid). If multiple garments are sewn, the 2 choices can be in one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt), more than one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt and skirt), or one garment each (ex: print shirt and striped pants). The addition of other fabric is allowed (ex: solids, other prints/stripes/plaids, etc.). For this category, polka dots are considered a print even if the dots appear to be in straight lines.  A plaid has a pattern of multi-color horizontal stripes intersecting with multi-color vertical stripes.  Checked fabrics like gingham and buffalo checks as well as houndstooth designs are considered plaids. Besides the construction techniques for stripes and plaids, consider the placement of prints, harmonious combination of fabrics in design of the outfit and current style trends. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit. The entry must be created by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing & Textiles project. (New for 2017)
  • Knit Challenge – Construct an entire wearable garment out of knit fabric. Any fabric content is allowed (cotton, polyester, wool, rayon, blend, etc.) and any type of knit (single knit, double knit, rib knit). This is not a garment that is hand-knit; it is a garment that is sewn, serged, or otherwise constructed using fabric. In designing and constructing the garment, consider how the stretch of knit fabric affects the fit and the opportunity to learn new techniques for seaming, hemming and edge finishes. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit. Open to all 4-H members with no project requirement. (New for 2017)

o   Note: The Knit Challenge is for a garment or garments constructed of knit fabric, not a stretch woven fabric. Some woven fabrics have lycra or spandex threads in them, like stretch denim, so they have a little stretch and the clothes you make are more comfortable. But that is still a woven fabric created by weaving two or more threads. Knit fabrics are made differently than wovens, using one continuous thread. Knit fabrics have 2-way stretch like t-shirt fabric or 4-way stretch like knits used for athletic wear. Because of the stretch in a knit fabric, they require different sewing techniques, hence the challenge. If you are in doubt about your fabric, compare the pictures below to how your fabric is made.

Knit Challenge Pic 1
The first picture is a woven fabric. There are multiple threads, woven in and out perpendicular to each other like a basket weave. When the edge is cut, the threads fray.

 

Knit Challenge Pic 2
The second picture is a knit fabric, where one thread makes loops and continues in rows, just like if you were knitting a sweater but with thinner threads. The raw edge doesn’t unravel. The loops make the fabric stretchier.

 

 

QUILTING CATEGORY

Youth may enter any quilted item completed under the direction of their quilting leader. Quilts must have a 4” sleeve attached to the back to display the item.

 

MODESTY GUIDELINES

Outfits are subject to review for modesty and appropriate attire. Formal wear may be strapless or have spaghetti straps. Backless dresses, excessive visible cleavage, visible undergarments, lingerie or swim suits are not permitted. All shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. must be at least fingertip length. All outfits must be suitable for comfortable walking, sitting, and going up and down stairs. Please reference the 4-H Dress Code online at: http://4h.ucanr.edu/files/210170.pdf.

PRE-WORN GARMENTS

Garments may be worn prior to judging but should be laundered or dry cleaned to not show soil.

WHAT IS A COMMENTARY?

The commentary you write about the project that you created will be read when you model/present your item during the Fashion Show.Please provide the information about both the model and the outfit.Commentary will be read and may be edited by the committee.

Please reference the Fashion Revue Commentary Worksheet before writing your commentary!

Fashion Revue Commentary Worksheet

4-H Fashion Revue Commentary Worksheet_001

4-H Fashion Revue Commentary Worksheet_002

 

SAMPLE COMMENTARY

"It's the 4th of July for Mary Smith every time she wears this patriotic suit and she has a right to celebrate! The jaunty jacket sports shiny star buttons on the bright red wool. What a great idea! The scraps from that jacket turn into patch pockets on the military blue dress. Mary has had 6 years of 4-H sewing and foods projects, but always finds a new challenge. She made this suit during a thunderstorm, finishing just before the electricity went off. Can you imagine how great this outfit will be at Davis, where Mary will be a freshman this fall?"

IDEAS ON DEVELOPING COMMENTARY

  • Give information about the member and his/ her interests, such as where he or she is from, other 4-H projects, years in 4-H, future plans, summer job, etc.
  • Give inspiration for, reason, or occasion for which outfit was planned. This could be the theme for the commentary.
  • Keep sentences short and easy to read.
  • Use questions and exclamations to give more variety to tone of voice.
  • Create an appealing mental picture with descriptive words.
  • Avoid the obvious or make it more interesting. (Rather than "it buttons up the front", say "buttons brighten the front", etc.)
  • Tell the biggest challenge you encountered in sewing the outfit; what new sewing technique you learned.
  • Add some humor, something amusing that happened while sewing. Example: In her rush to finish the dress, Katie put the zipper in upside down.
  • If there are two parts to your outfit, such as a coat and a dress, mention the outer layer first and then the under garment)
  • Read description of clothes in fashion magazines to get more fun ideas.
  • As you complete your commentary, read it aloud. Does it flow smoothly? Is it easy to read and say?
  • Please proof read before submitting.

Judging Information

  • Participants are divided by category and age group for judging.
  • Fashion Revue & Quilt Show judging is based on overall appearance and expression of personal style while the participants wear their outfits. Quilts are judged on a display rack with youth present.
  • Each participant briefly tells the judges about the outfit being worn and what was learned: no longer than 30 seconds (no note cards).
  • Participants should be prepared to answer questions from the judges.
  • The judges will review the entry information, documents and photographs.
  • Judging is closed to the public.
  • The commentary is not read during judging. It is read during the Fashion Revue & Quilt Show.

QUILTING AND CLOTHING MODELING PRACTICE

Attending the modeling practice is required for first time participants of Fashion Revue.  If you cannot make it to the practice, please call the UCCE Office at 865-1107.  Clothing members do not need to bring the items made, but they do need to bring their shoes to practice walking up stairs and on stage.  Quilting members can drop off their quilts the night of practice or take them to the UCCE Office during the week of the event: Monday (between 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and closed from noon to 1:00 p.m. for lunch) or Tuesday – Thursday (between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and closed from noon to 1:00 p.m.).

FASHION SHOW

The Fashion Show provides participants the opportunity to showcase their final product in front of family, friends, and the 4-H community. Each member models on stage while the commentary is read. The Fashion Show is an integral component of this event. All participants must model in the Fashion Show or awards will be forfeited. Participants with quilts will stand next to their quilt as the commentary is read. The Fashion Show is open to the public and is followed by the presentation of awards.

AWARDS GIVEN

Every participant will receive an award. Primary members will receive a participation certificate.  All other participants will receive a medal. 

GOLD MEDAL: A gold is given to those entries or members who most nearly meet the standards established for the particular class or level of performance. Excellent indicates a high degree of achievement toward the elements in the standards for the exhibit.

BLUE MEDAL: The second or blue grouping indicates those exhibits or individuals who rank very good in relation to the particular standards or expected achievement of the class or contest. Either the general level of the accomplishment is less than excellent or enough specific shortcomings are found to cause the placing to drop form excellent to very good.

RED CERTIFICATE: The red grouping contains those exhibits or individuals who upon evaluation rate average, acceptable, or satisfactory for the standards established. These exhibits have room for improvement.

WHITE CERTIFICATE: May be given if exhibits or individuals who for one reason or another fail to produce that level of achievement which can be reasonably expected in relation to the specific class or performance in which they are entered.

SERVICE PROJECTS

State Fashion Revue is coordinating two service projects for 2017, Cancer Heart Pillows and Quilts of Honor. Both items are small enough to be made during a project meeting, 4-H activity, or a community event, can be made with inexpensive and donated materials, can involve additional education and outreach, and can have a large impact. Completed pillows can be brought to 2017 SFR but even better is to donate them within your own community to the American Cancer Society or a Cancer hospital. Completed quilt squares and quilt tops are brought to 2017 SFR where they will be sorted by pattern and given to the volunteers of Quilts of Honor to complete. Please let us know what you are making!
