WHAT ARE CLOTHING EVALUATIONS AND CLOTHING REVUE:

The clothing evaluation and clothing revue are the last steps in completing a Clothing Project.A member sews a garment during the current 4-H year, and then attends one of the clothing evaluations where the garment is worn for an evaluator.(See “What Happens at Area Clothing Evaluations”.)The last step is to attend the Clothing Revue where the member will model the garment while a commentary about the garment is read.Family and friends are invited to attend.
