WHAT IS FASHION REVUE? It is an event that encourages members to focus on their personal appearance and their sense of style and fashion.  Yes, it is for all 4-H members!  Its primary purpose is to build self-confidence in young people by helping them find the style that suits them best and work on grooming, posture and stage presence. Members may purchase an outfit or sew a garment for the event.

This year, due to COVID-19 we are moving the County Fashion Revue to a Virtual event. Due to this change, we will be asking for additional information for your entry. Please follow the directions below and complete one survey per category. 
 
Traditional:
  • 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 and/or accessories to complete the outfit.

    If the Traditional ensemble has additional sewn garments which cannot all be worn at once, for example a 4-piece suit containing coordinating pieces, the additional garments may be carried. All the coordinated sewn pieces will be evaluated. Accessories such as hats, shoes, belts or jewelry are evaluated as parts of the outfit. Non-clothing items that the member made to match the outfit such as a backpack, purse, pillow, or quilt may be carried and considered during the evaluation. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.

Consumer Science Purchased $40 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 participant 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 2021: Use 2 different fabrics

Participants in this challenge will sew one or more garments that contain 2 different fabrics that are visible. They can be 2 different colors, 2 different textures, a print and a solid, or any other combination of 2 different fabrics. The fabric used for lining doesn’t count. If one garment is sewn it has to contain the 2 different fabrics. If more than one garment is sewn, the sewn garments together must contain the 2 different fabrics. More than 2 fabrics may be used but that does not increase the scorecard points.

In addition, choose from the following elements that are in your box. Junior members must include at least two (2) in their sewn garment(s). Intermediate members must include at least three (3). Senior members must include at least four (4). There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.

In the box:

  • Zipper, functional
  • Buttonholes, at least 2 that are functional
  • Pockets, 2, any type
  • Collar, waistband, or set-in sleeve
  • Gathering or ruffle
  • Darts or pleats, 2 or more
  • Trim. Examples are, but not limited to: fringe, lace, bias binding, piping, etc.
  • Hand made accessory

Vintage Challenge:

The term "vintage" is used to describe clothing between 20 and 100 years old that is also clearly representative of the era in which it was produced. To be called vintage, the piece should strongly reflect styles and trends associated with that era. Participants in this challenge will create an outfit that is inspired by or looks like a design from 1900-2000, using new fabric and notions. 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. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.

Cosplay Challenge:

Cosplay is the practice of dressing to resemble a fictional character from a movie, book, or video game. Cosplay can also depict an original character or a historical character.

Participants in this challenge will construct a cosplay costume. Start with a photo or drawing of the character that inspired the costume. Use any crafting techniques and any materials to make the costume. Sewing is not required. Pre-made, purchased costume kits, or parts of kits are not allowed. Accessories may be purchased. Do not include real or realistic weapons. The purchased garments may be used as a starting point for the costume (purchased jeans with sewn western shirt and vest; purchased blouse with a hand made poodle skirt and scarf). The costume and its theme must be 4-H appropriate. For instance, you can modify the Wonder Woman outfit to wear pants, tights, or a longer skirt. The participant must be able to walk, sit, and use stairs while in the costume. "DisneyBounding" is not considered Cosplay for this challenge. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.

Tie Dye Challenge:

  • List each garment you began with and tell what you did with this/these garment(s) to create your tie dye challenge. Provide a photo of your item before any alterations were made. 
  • List the supplies you used to create your accessory and how it was made.
  • List the other items in your outfit and whether they were constructed by you or purchased. 
  • Provide a short description of the outfit and the occasion or activity for which it will be worn.
  • There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category.
  • Winners in this category do not advance to state.

  • Include a description of where your idea came from, or what you were inspired by.

2021 Service projects

Face Masks and Port Pillows

Port Pillows are small and easy to sew out of soft fabric. They are used and much appreciated by patients undergoing chemotherapy infused through a port in their upper chest. The pillow attaches to the seat belt to cushion the port and reduce pain. Print the flyer and start sewing! 

Port Pillow Service Project 2021

Face Masks If you have a sewing machine, cotton fabric and beginner skills, you can make face masks for your family, friends, and local medical facilities. These washable masks are in great need and will be much appreciated. In some facilities, they are worn by volunteers. In others, health care professionals are wearing them over their N95 masks.
