I am so excited to share that the Tammy Top has arrived just in time for your summer sewing!

Like Rosita, Tammy is named after a real person, a dear friend of mine who I make sure to meet up with once a month. Tammy is beautiful and brilliant. She takes excellent care of herself physically and nutritionally, and practices yoga and meditation daily. She is a breath of fresh air to everyone, as she listens intently to every word as a Life and Wellness Coach. Her kind advice and support leaves everyone feeling lighter and ready to face the world head on. So, how could I not name this sleeveless, breezy top after her?

Tammy is designed after a top I have loved and owned for many years. In fact, I have been making them for myself for the last three years now! She is my ‘go to’ summer blouse, just like Rosita is my ‘go to’ winter jacket. I most often make my Tammys out of silk, as I prefer the lightweight float of chiffons, but she is just as fun when made out of lightweight cottons and rayons, and those fabrics are easier to sew. She looks great assembled in one single fabric, or with contrast as shown on the pattern cover page.

Tammy is easy going, designed to simply pull on and off over your head.  She has a loose fit with an overall ‘A’ line shape, is multi-layered with a high/low hem, and features a stylish, flat front flounce. You will also find a hidden princess seam in the front, underneath the flounce. The upper back flounce features a 2” box pleat for extra swing and added walk-away fashion.   

We hope you give Tammy a try this summer! We know you will enjoy adding her to your collection. You can purchase her at my Etsy store.

Happy Summer and Happy Sewing!!
