The Roxanne Tunic is hot off the machine and I am so in love with it. This tunic length top is comfortable, perfect over leggings, and pretty stylish. You have the option of two different lengths and I choose the longer tunic length. I love boots and slim fit pants with cozy shirts in the fall so this one completely fits the bill. You can also choose between two different sleeve lengths as well. I am wearing ¾ length sleeves here. From the front this looks like a typical casual shirt, but from the back it is a little bit fancy! I also used the curved hem option instead of straight. I choose to do the faux button placket because I was feeling lazy. You can do a real button placket or go with one of the lace-up options.
I made the 4x bust graded to the 5x at the waist and hips. I also used the included full bust adjusted piece because it saves me the time and trouble of doing plus I get a better fit. This is the size I always sew for 5oo4. I like with sizing is consistent from a company. I also did a small full bicep adjustment. This pattern sizes from XXS to 5X.
This beautiful floral print on golden yellow fabric is a brushed poly from Sew Blessed. I love the suede-like this one has, so perfect for fall. I picked up the buttons from Joann’s in a series of 4 trips in 2 days….don’t ask! There was no way my mixed button collection would have this many matches and thankfully these were 5 for 99 cents! If you haven’t bought buttons lately…holy cow! They are expensive! I even got bold and used a grey to contrast with the gold.
My Opinions: Basic construction went quickly and as expected. The Button Placket is well worth the efforts. It is fun, cute, and a little bit fancy. I intend to make one or two more in the next week or so. I think this would also be cute in a slightly longer length but that would have to be as a hack, as it isn’t a pattern option.
