- 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)
- See It, Sew It Challenge– Have you found an outfit online or in a magazine that you would love to copy for yourself? This category is perfect for you! Start with a picture of a new garment or outfit from a current magazine, catalog, store display, or website. List the retail price if you were to purchase the garment or outfit. Then get creative and copy it. Include the cost of your sewn garment/outfit. Use of a commercial or hand-drawn pattern is your choice (the original picture cannot be from the pattern envelope.) The garment must be made in the Clothing and Textiles project. The focus of this category is copying a new garment and making it fit you. The entry should only be modified for fit, type of fabric, or color/print of fabric, keeping it as close to the original as possible. Copying a vintage Lucille Ball dress, for example, would be in the Retro Challenge. (New for 2018)
Retro/Vintage Inspired Challenge – Create an outfit that is inspired by a vintage design using new fabric and notions. Vintage is 20-100 years old, so use an inspiration that is from 1900-2000. The entry must state the year or period of the design and include a drawing, photo, or description of the design that inspires your outfit. At least one garment must be handmade by the member. Other garments and accessories can be handmade or purchased but must be representational of the same era. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.
Ideas for sources of inspiration include but aren’t limited to: a sewing pattern that belonged to your parent, an outfit worn by your parent or grandparent in their youth, an iconic outfit worn by someone famous like Lucille Ball, Nancy Reagan, John Wayne, or James Dean, or use one of the new sewing patterns labeled Retro.

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!
"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.
- 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.

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.

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.
