I'm going to throw it out there and say my favorite part of any holiday is figuring out what I am going to wear for the occasion. I take great precaution in planning my outfit like it's my red carpet appearance. I think this quote "Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway" puts it best. And as a fabricista, I enjoy taking the time to make that perfect outfit. I sketched out two ideal outfits from my favorite red, white, and blue fabrics from Fabric Mart for this patriotic season.
Outfit for the Ladies:
A shirt dress with pintuck bodice and pockets.
Easy to wear and comfortable.
Match with a strappy sandal and you have a perfect 4th of July outfit!
[ Pima Cotton is closely compared to Egyptian Cotton.
It is a high quality cotton that is very soft and fine which makes
it a great choice for dresses and dress shirts. ]
Don't forget to make your love a coordinating outfit for your outings!
Make him a laid back dress shirt and a pair of linen flat front shorts to compliment your dress.
You'll look like a perfect pair!
But SURE. I only give you this idea now! Don't worry, there are plenty of patriotic holidays you can pull this sweet set out on. Or if you are like me with a huge fabric stash you might only get to it next year! (in that case this post came in perfect timing!)
Happy sewing and have a beautiful 4th of July, everyone! - Kaitlin
