The Tan and Tipsy Top was inspired by all of my favorite things: Florida life and sparkling sandy beaches, sunrise on the water, and champagne bubbles and glittering seashells. I made this top to wear over a bathing suit beachcombing, or on its own for a gorgeous flowy, summery look on vacation.

The Tan and Tipsy top has a positive ease of 2-4” in the bust and 8-10” in the waist so that while it is a crop top, it is roomy and comfortable. It is currently available in sizes S-XL. Please contact me about additional sizes :) :)

This top is very easily customizable to your exact preferences. Instructions are written for the top to fall at your natural waist, but if you are long in the torso or prefer more tummy coverage, simply add rows making sure to keep the number consistent between front panels/back panel, and always changing colors on a WS row.

If you prefer more coverage for your “ladies”, you can seam the top as high as you like. Or, simply wear the shirt with the back panel in the front. The Tan and Tipsy top is REVERSIBLE BABY!!!!

I knit very loosely, so you may need to size up your needles to obtain gauge. Always gauge swatch!!!

The top is worked in two panels and then seamed together. It is knit from the bottom up.
