I made this summer dress a couple of months back and made it using a couple of patterns combined. For the bodice I used New Look 6886 and changed the spaghetti straps to tie straps. Very easy to do! I used a different pattern for the skirt which I cant remember, but its a basic gathered skirt bottom which is effectively two rectangles of fabric. Great number to sew up!
