Ready to get a little tipsy??
The Tan and Tipsy Top was inspired by some of my favorite things: Florida life and sparkling sandy beaches, champagne bubbles and glittering seashells. I made this top to wear over a bathing suit beachcombing, or as a sexy, flowy, summery top for 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. Please choose a size that is 8-10” more than your waist measurements (or if you prefer a snugger fit, feel free to make whatever size you like! See my Instagram to see how different sizes look on the same model.)

Measurements:
S, M, L, XL (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) to fit waist measurements of 25-26.5”, 28-30”, 32-34”, 36-38” (40-42”, 44-45”, 46-47”, 49-50”)
Garment Measurements: 34”, 38”, 42”, 46” (50”, 53”, 55.5”, 58.5”) at waist
Yardage: 275, 315, 345, 370 (400, 430, 450, 475)

While the pattern is currently available in sizes S-5XL, sizes 3XL-5XL have not been tested, so if interested in testing and providing notes/photos, please contact me about receiving this pattern for free.

The Tan and Tipsy top is easy to customize. Instructions are written for the top to fall at your natural waist, but can be altered to add length.
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 top is worked flat in two panels and then seamed together. It is knit from the bottom up.
