Morgan County 4-H’ers Show They’re “Wild About Fashion” at the Annual Fashion Revue – The Fort Morgan Times

On Monday, July 25, the Morgan County Fair Fashion Revue took a trip to the jungle, where different girls competed in the creative and engineered clothing categories. Faith Dalrymple, Ziva Zamudio, Evy Lozier and Tenleigh Lorenzini all participated in Creative Clothing. Tenleigh Lorenzini received Grand Champion and Faith Dalrymple took Reserve Grand Champion. Clothing Construction also had four participants: Peighton Arndt, Kimber Heid, Evy Lozier and Faye Klenda. Grand Champion was Faye Kelnda and Reserve Grand Champion was Peighton Arndt.

Peighton Arndt wore a pajama set that she made with flannel for the pants and cotton for the top. She had to make an elastic sleeve and sew raglan sleeves. She is excited to finally be allowed to wear her new pajamas to bed and for PJ day at school! This outfit placed first in the Junior Clothing Construction class and Reserve Grand in the Clothing Construction Division.

This year, Kimber Heid made a 50s-style dress that she can wear to parties and social events. She learned how to alter a pattern to fit her measurements, construct pockets, and construct a skirt with full lines! Kimber completed the outfit with a freshwater pearl necklace and earrings that her mother had worn on her wedding day in 2001.

Evy Lozier’s first outfit of the night was a set of blue and white mini pinstripe fabric with pink flamingos embroidered on them. She paired the pants with a white top. Evy can’t wait to wear this outfit when school starts in just a few short weeks. Evy Lozier placed second in Junior Clothing Construction
class.

The last Clothing Construction entrant for the evening was Faye Klenda’s yellow skirt. Although this was not the most difficult piece Faye has made so far, it did present some challenges such as learning how to sew a new type of pocket. She plans to wear this skirt to church, banquets, and dressing up an everyday outfit. She
placed first in the Senior Clothing Construction class and Grand Champion in the Clothing Construction division.

Faith Dalrymple felt wildly fashionable in lace-trimmed capris. She found these Capri pants at a thrift store and added white lace at the bottom of each leg. Then she highlighted the front and back pockets with the same lace. She paired the trousers with a white top and a pair of tennis shoes which she laced up with pink
band. Faith took first place in the Junior Artistic Clothing class and Reserve Grand Champion in the Artistic Clothing division.

Ziva Zamudio modified a black shirt and a pair of jeans by adding bling and a touch of her own. She added beads to the ripped knees using fishing line, grommets and four different types of beads. She added a pearl and bling trim to the shirt. Ziva learned a lot making this outfit and she plans to continue recycling her clothes in the hope that she will become a fashion designer one day. She placed second in the Junior Artistic Clothing Class.

For Evy Lozier’s second outfit of the night, she showed her love of giraffes by wearing a pink shirt and denim skirt, each with multiple giraffes on it. She chose to use different animal patterns on the giraffes to put a different spin on it.

In the Senior Artistic Clothing class, Tenleigh Lorenzini wore a western fashion outfit. She took a cream dress and used it to create a black duster so she could enhance it with a shirt and jewelry in any color. Tenleigh also took her jeans that didn’t fit over her boots and made them flare at the bottom by adding more denim. Tenleigh took first place in the Senior Artistic Clothing class and grand champion in the Artistic Clothing Division.

Junior Clothing Construction: Peighton Arndt
