I used the Bordeaux pattern for this dress. I chose a light, linen- type fabric for this, and it turned out well. I edged the neck yoke in yellow bias tape. Since I am a size 34-36, I completed the pattern without extra seam allowances — the pattern is very fitted, slightly different than the example. Side note: make sure the neck yoke can fit over your head! I added a zipper on the yoke since I had completed it before I realized it. I also moved the zipper from the back to the right side.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
