Amber's Roxanne Top in Nani Iro Birds Eye


I've been dreaming of making the Roxanne by Victory sewing patterns, and when the new Nani Iro arrived it was on!

The Roxanne comes with two versions, a collared sleeveless top and a flowy sleeved version with a skinny neck tie. For me the triple pleated collar was irresistible, but since I wanted sleeves for fall I decided to combine the two versions.

Cute collar town!
The instructions for this pattern were so well-written by Kristiann of Victory Sewing Patterns. I love that she walks you through the basic measurements for your garment and explains how to alter your pieces if needed. 

I finished my Roxanne by adding a tie at the back waist. This gives a little more shape to the voluminous pleated shirttail. I love it! The double gauze Nani Iro fabric is soft and cozy and my new top is so comfortable and easy to wear!

I can't wait to take on more of Kristiann's patterns!

I love this top! The print is spectacular of course and that back draping makes it very special and don't even get me started on that color. Top notch!

I was interested to see what other people are doing with this fabric as I have just obtained a length of it, in blue. Gorgeous fabric. You have made an excellent design choice to show off the fabric, and stitched it beautifully. I too love, love the collar. Well done.
