Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress - Take Two!

You may remember that I completed the Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress first here in Pink and Purple.  I had a few issues with the pattern.  I'm not used to Oliver + S patterns and their directions seemed a bit odd to me. I went off the pictures a few times.  Well this second time around their directions still were weird to me.  I had to re-read a few a couple times to understand what they meant.  Either way I know the end result is so darn cute so I wanted to try again.  I used these cute patterns that I got from Fabric.com (love that place!).
Fabric:  Once Upon a Time Flowers Yellow/Periwinkle 100% cotton (FK-456 on fabric.com)
             Once Upon a Time Bugs Blue 100% cotton (FK-457 on fabric.com)

This time around I knew a bit more of what I was doing so it wasn't completely foreign to me; things went a bit smoother.  I followed the directions exactly for every step of View A, including using the double fabric on the bottom.  I think it makes the dress too heavy down there and wish I had stayed with the single thickness. Miss K likes it a lot and that is what matters most.  The dress fits her well but I know it will be too small in a month.  I feel that 2 tries of the pattern are enough for me and the dress is unique enough that she doesn't need anymore until she outgrows them.  I'm happy, she's happy.  It is an ok pattern in my book.

I really love those cute little "v" pockets!
