Roxanne Tunic

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.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
