This is Vogue 8380 – Light summery and with a bit of bite.
The fabric is a lovely dip-dyed cotton.
Two things I learned when making this pattern:
1) Under-bust measurements count
2) Use a more drape-y fabric for the tie around the neck – I just used the same cotton and it’s a bit harsh and the bow isn’t as dramatic as it could be.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
