This is just a quick project I turned out in an afternoon, as I am on a summer sewing high lately. I made several modifications: graded out from a size 6 to a size 14 (!) between bust and hips, scooped the neckline two inches lower, scooped the armholes a centimeter lower (they were tight), and added a few inches to the overall length. Unless you have a short torso, I would definitely recommend lengthening this so you can tuck it in. I also added piping to the armhole and neckline instead of finishing it with bias tape.
