McCalls 6948 modified

My middle daughter was in need of a new Summer dress, and I jumped at the chance to sew one for her. She had a very specific picture in mind of what she wanted - a simple sundress with contrast yoke, waistband and hem.

She picked out the fabrics from our local fabric store, can you tell her favourite colour is blue?  The pattern I used is McCall's 6948 - my modifications included piecing the bodice with the two fabrics, lining the bodice instead of using bias tape, made the skirt shorter, added the waistband, and added the contrast hem.  It was a quick sew and she's excited that her design turned into a finished dress.
