Roxanne Tunic. Victory patterns +atelier brunette discount code

I made a loose top (Shock!!!!) but wait!!! This is not for me, It’s for my mom. My very glam mum love wearing jeans and beautiful blouses to work and she been preferring loose shapes recently. The roxanne fits the bill perfectly because the pattern is super cute, specially the triple folded collar.
Bare with me on these very funny poses but otherwise it’s hard to showcase the shape of the pattern when you are just standing straight.

Roxanne Victory was made size 8, no alterations. All french seamed and double hemmed. I have interfaced the back slip for extra strength.

Fabric: delicious viscose {Tissu Swoon*} from Atelier Brunette. A gift from Annabelle. She is adorable!  I had the pleasure to visit the store in Paris in September. I had a total crush! 

Annabelle has kindly offered all my readers 10% discount till 31 January 2015 + you get a lovely tote bag.  Happy shopping! Use code: LOVEPINHEIRO .

Grainline has a great tutorial for french seam armholes.

The pattern was a delight to sew, so easy and quick. The only pain was setting the triple crepe collar. When picking the fabric for the collar I would recommend something that likes the iron: like cotton or linen. I had to be so careful to not leave any iron marks. Some readers recommended me to tack some pieces of the collar but I managed to settle them without.

Am I convinced to wear loose tops? On the fence here…

I’m too tall and the excess of fabric makes me feel large. I love the concept but just don’t think it works for my personality.

I do like the idea of making this tunic in a semi transparent fabric so the body shape don’t get lost/ overwhelmed. Is there something/shape you don’t like wearing ?
