Tammy dress by Annelaine Patterns

Summer sewing has started! We are still waiting for summer temperatures to arrive, but at least every once in a while the sun is showing itself. The Tammy dress* from Annelaine Patterns is perfect for summer!
The Tammy dress comes in a wide size range from 9M - 20 and has several options. Our girl picked out the fabric of the bodice. It is from Lillestoff. I used this fabric already before. I pre-selected a couple of fabric choices from my stash for her. I am really trying to use the fabric that I already own for a longer period. The fabric for the skirt is also already in my stash for a long period of time and it is a very flowy fabric. I find it quite a challenge to sew with, and it easily gathers. Therefore, I thought it would be great to make a gathered skirt with it. The pattern also has the option of a circle skirt, for peplum/tunic length or dress length.
The unique element of this dress are the straps on the back. There are 6 different options for the straps on the back, one or two straps, in a cross or just straight. I really like that element of the dress. If you like dresses with straps on the back, you should also have a look at the Firecracker dress that I sewed last year from Annelaine Patterns. The firecracker dress is the perfect dress for warm summer weather. 
Additionally, you can choose for the optional sleeve tabs, I think they are cute. And of course, great to use for different fabrics. I attached the sleeve tabs with kam snaps, in a flower form. She, from Inspiration, gifted me several flower kam snaps and they fit perfect with the fabric.
What I also really like about the pattern is that you can get the Tammy dress in a bundle with the doll pattern. I love that idea and I think our girl would too. Unfortunately I did not have the time to finish the dolls dress in time for the pictures.
