I’m excited to be here again for the Sew Americana Blog Tour, year two! I love everything Katy of Wild and Wanderful does so of course I had to join this tour. My sister and I had so much fun last year we jumped on board again in a heartbeat!
These three have grown so much in the last year and I can’t get over how darn cute they were for this shoot. Last year my sister and her kids were moving from Alaska to Arizona and stayed here in Utah for part of the summer. This year they’re here for the summer too and we can’t get enough of these cute cousins!
My girls sure love doting on these little ones!
Let’s talk about the outfits! This teeny one is adorable in Made For Mermaids Evie Suspender Shorts and a Pistachio Top from Sew Like My Mom. In a classic chambray these shorties are such a staple. Super cute but so practical too!
The back of these ties in a bow and really ups the cuteness factor. I just love little bloomer shorts in the summer!
I was thrilled when my oldest fell for overalls- she’s all about comfort AND style. I love the Sydney Romper and Pinafore from Mouse House Creations. It’s such a classic, sweet style and was perfect for the look we were going for. I’ll never grow tired of picot trim bias, especially in a gingham! It’s the fun pop these shorts needed but still keeps them versatile.
We paired the overalls with a Boo! Designs Sleeved Leotard for a fun vintage look with a modern twist. She absolutely loves this outfit! I love that it’s perfect for summer- an outfit she can wear running around the neighborhood with friends or off to a bar-b-que.
My other niece is all about comfort and these two pieces will be great to mix and match into her wardrobe. The Skipper Top from Sew Much Ado is such a staple pattern for my sister and I. It’s a quick sew and is a great base to show off fun fabrics. In a red and white stripe, it’s great for the Fourth of July but will still be wearable year round too.
She got a pair of Hailey Ruffle Shorts from Made for Mermaids and a Barb’s Headband from Simple Life Pattern Company. This comfy knit outfit is totally playground approved.
Perfect for hiding in the big ‘ol tires at one of our favorite parks! Isn’t she just darling?! I feel like as an aunt, I can say these things 😉 She is just pure innocence and joy!
The last outfit we made for the tour was another one we wanted to be able to mix and match into her existing wardrobe. These chambray Lilly Shorts from Violette Fields Threads will be great. I love the pop of red from the bias tape!
She lives in her Miss Mary Mack (affl. link) tees from Love Notions and I always know I can’t go wrong making her more! This one in floral and polka dots is definitely my new favorite. So cute and girly!
As it often goes these days, I had more fun taking and editing these pics than I did sewing. So I’m going to leave you with a bit of photo overload and a little wish for ya’ll to have the best holiday weekend! I’m so grateful for this beautiful, amazing country we live in and for all those who have fought to make it what it is today.
Make sure to head on over to all the other stops on the tour- so much patriotic goodness!
