Traditional category

Participants in this category will construct garment(s), showcasing sewing skills and the ability to coordinate an outfit. The outfit must contain at least one constructed garment; participants are encouraged to construct additional garments to complete the outfit. The garment(s) in this category must be sewn by the member as part of the Clothing & Textiles/Sewing Project.

Consumer Science Purchased, $40.00 Limit

Participants in this category will shop for an entire outfit with the total cost not to exceed $40.00, including 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. 

Box Challenge

For 2019: Red, White & Blue

Participants in this challenge will sew one or more garments that contain 3 colors – red, white, and blue. If one garment is sewn it has to contain all 3 colors. If more than one garment is sewn, the sewn garments together must contain the 3 colors. The fabrics(s) may contain other colors but the predominant colors must be red, white, and blue.

In addition, choose from the following elements that are in your box. Junior members must include at least one in their sewn garment(s). Intermediate members must include at least two. Senior members must include at least three. The garment(s) must be sewn by the member as part of the Clothing & Textiles/Sewing project.

In the box:

  • Buttons- must use at least 3 red, white or blue or combination. For Juniors they may be decorative. For Intermediates and Seniors, they must be functional.
  • Zipper- red, white or blue; functional not just decorative.
  • Trim – red, white or blue or a combination of colors – for example: rickrack, lace, piping, braid, bias tape binding, etc.

  • Collar, ruffle, or set-in sleeve
  • Handmade accessory – red, white, or blue, or combination of these colors

Make It Mine Challenge

Participants in this challenge will alter a commercial pattern or make your own pattern to achieve the fit and style you desire in a garment of your choice.

Option 1. Start with a fashion design drawing. Submit a picture of it.

Option 2. Start with an idea of what you want to make. Submit the written description.

Find a commercial pattern or patterns, or draw your own pattern to create a wearable garment. If you use one or more commercial patterns, submit the pattern number with a picture of the envelope front. Tell which part you used (skirt, sleeve, front with collar, pant leg, etc.). Tell how you modified the pattern to fit you or to create the look you wanted. If you draw your own pattern, tell how you made your pattern and how you figured out the instructions for creating your garment(s). There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category. 

Retro/Historical Challenge

Participants in this challenge will create an outfit that is inspired by or looks like an old design using new fabric and notions. For this category, the design should be from before the year 2000. The entry must state the year or period of the design and include a drawing, photo, or description of the classic design that is being reproduced or duplicated. Add accessories to complete the outfit that are reminiscent of that time period. The outfit must feature at least one handmade garment made by the member. Other pieces of the outfit must be representational and recognizable as belonging to the same era as the hand made garment. The garment(s) in this challenge must be sewn by the member as part of the Clothing & Textiles/Sewing Project.
