Fashion construction is an individual event that recognizes
participants who apply Fashion Construction skills learned in
Family and Consumer Sciences courses and create a display
using samples of their skills. Using new materials,
participants construct in advance a garment or ensemble
that dresses both the upper and lower body of a child or an
adult. Garment/ensemble must include at least eight fashion
construction techniques. Display finished product along with
appropriate accessories. Participants must prepare a display,
sample garment, and an oral presentation.

This resource guide addresses the 17 possible skill requirements
specified in the Fashion Construction Event guidelines, from which
students are to select eight skills to include in their garment. Many
of the 17 skills include several sub-skills or variations, 50 sub-skills
in all. For example, the zipper skill is subdivided into hidden zipper,
centered zipper, and lapped zipper. For each of the 50 sub-skills,
the manual includes a PowerPoint slide that provides a link to a
selected YouTube video and page number reference from the
Simplicity sewing book. Multiple videos were reviewed and the
most clear, well-designed video chosen for each sub-skill. The
PowerPoint has been designed with jump capability linking from
the table of contents to the specific sub-skill slide. The manual can
be used with a whole class or by individual students.

Clarity. The skills were shown in a non-distracting format,
with contrasting color between thread and fabric.
 Preferred length. The video was 5-10 minutes in length.
 Video angle. The focus was on the fabric and the skill
being demonstrated. The angle was over the shoulder, or
directly above the skill, zooming in when needed. The
camera was still, not constantly moving.
 Skill demonstration and explanation. The demonstrator
was well prepared using little movement and emphasizing
the skill. A step-by-step verbal explanation of the skill
demonstrated each step. If a technical term was used it
was defined it in an easily understood way. Key skills were
repeated for better comprehension.

The following process was used to select the how-to videos used in
this resource guide:
 Entered key words in the YouTube search field: “How to (and the
specific skill).”
 From the search list, identified the four or five videos with the
largest number of views, usually 35,000 to 90,000 views.
 Viewed each of the identified four or five videos. Most videos were
5-10 minutes.
 Selected the best video based on the four criteria shown in the
next slide.
 Sent the videos to two reviewers with sewing backgrounds to
ensure the videos were correct and easily understood. The
reviewers were a current Family and Consumer Sciences teacher
with a background in fashion construction and a professional
seamstress with a degree in fashion who owns and operates a
custom design and sewing business.
