I am super excited that today is finally here, because I get to share my creations for the third annual Sew Americana Blog Tour! I have never participated in a holiday-themed blog tour before, and it has been tons of fun! The Sew Americana Blog Tour is hosted by Katy at Wild & Wanderful, and she is ah-ma-zing! Be sure to read all the way to the end to see the list of fabulous bloggers participating.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!
The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays! I have never made myself any “Americana” themed clothing before, and I immediately started planning what to make. Last year I made several holiday-specific items (Sew Americana 2017), and I love them; however, they don’t get a lot of wear because they are so specific. This year I decided to take a different path, and I made items that can be worn year round.
I used the Pattern’s for Pirates Slim Fit Raglan to make my top, and I also used their SOS Pants pattern to create my shorts. The fabric for my top was generously contributed by Sly Fox Fabrics.
Both items are universal enough I can wear them a lot. I made the shorts at a length that would be appropriate for work, and the t-shirt will carry me through the winter.
So, there you have it, my contribution(s) to the Sew Americana Blog Tour.
Check out the amazing bloggers and sponsors who are participating in this blog tour. We have a linky party going, as well; be sure to add your link if you have made anything with the “Americana” theme!
