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.
Patterns for Pirates: SOS Pants, Slim 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!

I’m so happy that you joined for another year. And I might steal your entire outfit. Gorgeous, Amy!
Thank you so much, Katy!
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.
Thank you, Sarah! I love stars and stripes, but I also love being able to wear something year round. 😀
Those shorts look so comfy! And I love a raglan. You look great ?
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!
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!
Red shoes are a definite favorite!
I love how the outfit screams 4th of July, however still appropriate for every day wear!
Thank you, that was my goal!
Thank you, that was my goal!
So smart that they can be worn separately all year, but together they are perfect for the 4th! I love your look! ❤️?
Thank you, Jennie!
Love that they can be worn year round!
Great combo! And so easy to mix and match with other wardrobe pieces too 🙂
