Transition and Tradition at Buffalo County Clothing Revue

Fifteen youth from throughout Buffalo County with nearly thirty entries participated in the 2018 Buffalo County Clothing Revue held on June 19, at the Roger Marten Community Center. The theme of this year’s event was Together in Transition and Tradition. Buffalo County 4-H Clothing Alumni brought exhibits from their years in the Clothing Project. The 4-H Clothing Project teaches youth how to purchase material and a pattern, create the garment by sewing and following a pattern, and finding accessories to match the garment that was created. The Clothing Revue, coordinated by Buffalo County UWEX Fair Intern, Rachel Hovey, gives the opportunity for youth to receive feedback on the fit, style, appearance, and fabric and pattern selection of the garments they have created. This experience gives youth the opportunity to learn techniques for sewing clothing and developing life skills such as consumerism, goal setting, planning and organization skills. After the judging was completed, a style show was put on for all exhibitors to model one of their outfits. The judge for the evening was Fay Passow. The Clothing Revue Project members would like to give a special thank you to the Marten Center for holding the event, Judge Fay Passow for giving the youth constructive feedback, Marie Ritscher and Michelle Hovey for recording results and feedback, and the volunteers that help the young members sew their own garments.
