Would She made one exception be an acceptable translation? Or would it be necessary to say something like Hon gjorde bara ett undantag to get this sense?

If you stress ett in the Swedish sentence, you get this meaning. (I've added it as an accepted answer too).

Wouldn't this literally translate to "She did an exception"?
