Members may purchase an outfit or sew a garment for the event. The sewn categories may use new fabric or the recycling of an old garment into a new one. This event is open to all 4-H members.
Judging will be based on the fit and appearance of the garment as well as the presentation of the outfit. Members will be judged by age division and category.
