Sew Americana Tour – Day Two


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.


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.



Patterns for Pirates:  SOS PantsSlim Fit Raglan

Sly Fox Fabrics:  Double Brushed Poly Chambray Stripes, Tri-Blend Jersey Solid White



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!

  1. I’m so happy that you joined for another year. And I might steal your entire outfit. Gorgeous, Amy!

  2. I love this outfit! I am loving the red shorts. I am with you, I tend to make pieces that can be worn all year that are patriotic but not straight up flag stars and stripes.

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I love stars and stripes, but I also love being able to wear something year round. 😀

  3. Those shorts look so comfy! And I love a raglan. You look great ?

    1. Thank you! The shorts feel like wearing pajamas! I just wore them again yesterday to travel across the state, and they never bothered me once!

  4. I love that top, you’ll get some much use out of it as I think stripes will count as a wardrobe basic and let’s not forget to mention the shoes! I love red shoes!

  5. So smart that they can be worn separately all year, but together they are perfect for the 4th! I love your look! ❤️?
