Before summer disappears entirely, I decided to make another summer dress, this time in a blue and white polka dot! The bodice is a very heavily altered version of Simplicity 1779. I made View D of this pattern. The collar was really wide (it looked like I was wearing a low-cut version of a judge outfit), so I actually turned it under and sewed it down after I had already sewn the collar in (which is why those little wing things are there on the ends). Both the waistband and skirt are just rectangles, so nothing too spectacular about that. ;)
