The Sew Americana Blog Tour hosted by Katy of Wild and Wanderful and Thread and Grain has become a tradition for us. For the past four years, my sister and I have joined in the fun, sewing for our kids, and doing cute cousin photos in their new handmades. We’ve done pretty dresses, fun play clothes, swimsuits, and this year we decided on pjs. We even through in our little boys for even more cuteness (and chaos!).
After a marathon day of sewing, our photoshoot at dusk with six kiddos was an adventure! My sister and her kids have lived all over the country (they’re currently in Colorado) and we cherished the few days we had with them. They sure love each other and are too cute when they get together.
For these looks, we used a ton of stash fabrics, mostly from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. We also had fun using our favorite everyday patterns to create comfy loungewear that doubles as play clothes for those long summer days that tend to blend together!
These two are wearing Hey June Racerback dresses hacked to be top length paired with Patterns for Pirates Walk the Plank pajamas shorts.
The boys are sporting Titchy Threads Rowan tees and Oliver + S Sunny Day shorts. My Charlie is indeed wearing his backward, lol!
Little Edie is adorable in Sew Much Ado’s free nightgown pattern.
And finally, my oldest is sporting Love Notions Leggins and girls Classic Tee. She loves that she can wear these as separates during the day too!
Thanks for stopping by our stop on the tour! It really is one of our favorites all year. We love the chance it gives us to pause for a moment and really celebrate this great country we live in. The other bloggers this week have been so inspiring and I hope you take a minute to check them out!
Thanks Katy for hosting this fun party every year!
