Roxy is a simple, princess cut, A-line dress. I had a few fabrics that coordinated well, but needed lots of space or busyness would take over. This was a great pattern for the fabric. I traced a size 9/10 but did not add a seam allowance. Going up a size and not adding a seam allowance on the European patterns has been a good trick for my tall skinny girl.
The directions for this pattern are few, unless you look them up on the internet. I just put the pieces together and added a bias trim for the neckline and ruffle for the hem. I used an invisible zipper in the back to make it even faster and easier. This dress was made 100% on the sewing machine.

Now, I am off to four days of sewing class bliss at the American Sewing Guild's National Convention.
