State Recognized Categories
1. 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, and worn by the member (not constructed for someone else). The outfit must contain at least one constructed garment; participants are encouraged to construct additional garments to complete the outfit. (No change from 2015)
2. Consumer Science Purchased - $40.00 limit 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. There is no 4-H project requirement, which means that any 4-H member may enter this category. (No change from 2015)
3. 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.
4. Stripe/Print/Plaid Challenge - Choose any 2 of the 3 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. If multiple garments are sewn, the 2 choices can be in one garment, more than one garment, or one garment each. The addition of other fabric is allowed (ex: solids, other prints, stripes, plaids, etc.). Polka dots are a print. Consider construction techniques for stripes and plaids, the placement of prints, harmonious combination of fabrics 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 a 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 hand-knit garment: it is a garment that is sewn, serged or otherwise constructed using a knit fabric. Some woven fabrics contain spandex threads which make them strectchy so they are more comfortable but they are still woven fabric. This Challenge is for a knit fabric, not woven. See the pictures on the SFR website to help indentify a knit fabric. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit. Open to all 4-H members with no project requirement. (New for 2017)

- Quilting – Sewing of a garment, bed quilt, quilted wall hanging, etc.
2017 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!
