And we're back for round two! I hope you enjoyed all the day one
looks that kicked off the Festival Fever Blog Tour! I love reading about all the details and inspirations that go into people's looks-- and about the fun and festive events that happen in the places our bloggers call home (personally, I am so ready to attend the Fried Pickle Festival, where ever that happens to be).
The more I read, the more excited I get to get out there and enjoy the local events my community offers (dare I say that I have Festival Fever? ha!). But in all honesty, I love sewing for specific events. To me, that's the perfect solution to lost sewjo: pick an event, a party, any little get together or outing in your week ahead, and make a goal of creating a new outfit to wear there. There's that Julia Child quote that "a party without cake is just a meeting". Well, if you ask me, a party without a new dress is just a meeting. I don't need much excuse at all to sew up something new! And today's blog posts are the perfect inspirations.
Hit up today's blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love in the comments- one commenter will be randomly picked for $25 store credit to Boho Fabrics

Without further ado:
Meg at Threads of Magic
made some truly inspired looks! This modified Rival
jacket is an ode to Jimi Hendrix's iconic military jacket, with a steampunk twist. She also added some dramatic flair to the Drama Dress
. Check out all her looks here
(I, for one, am truly obsessed with that Rival jacket!).
Narelle at Threadistry
knows how to celebrate her birthday right! She used this opportunity to create a top that's all about her! You have got to see the special touches her embroidery brings to this Super Sleeve Top
(personally, one of my most-used patterns!). Check out the amazing subtle details over at Threadistry
Livia of Liviality
sewed up a gorgeous dress to give her the festival feel: light, happy and free! She made the With Love Dress
in woven with an A-line skirt, pockets (from the Riot Skirt) and a Bonnaroo-inspired high/low hem. Find out more on her blog
And as for me at Middle River Studio, I sewed up the hi-lo Bonnaroo Bundle skirt two different ways-- one with an elastic waistband and one mashed with the Sincerely Rylee Dress and some wide lace trim for a Pin-spired look. I love wearing these-- the skirts float so beautifully when I walk, I feel like a boho goddess. Read all the details over at Middle River Studio.
That's all for day two! Don't forget to leave a comment on a blog or two for a chance to win that Boho Fabric credit! See you tomorrow <3
