The cutest dress I've ever made

I made this reversible version of Made by Rae's Itty Bitty Dress.. as inspired by Rachel from House of Pinheiro...
I made it for very special friends who are due in October with a little girl, after waiting a very long time for her to be ready to visit the world:)
If you haven't made this pattern for any little bubas you know, you should. It is ridiculously cute and simple to make :)
I think I'm going to be making a lot more..

Victoria Blazer orrrrrr tent?

Hellooo there,
*sigh*.... So I loved the Victoria pattern, I loved making it. Really really couldn't wait to make a plain black one.. and found awesome lining for it too.
Which is why I'm so sad that I made it too big, like a spaz that I am
I know its supposed to be baggy boyish loosey etc.. but I'm pretty sure mine is past that stage..
Also hard to judge, as most people have made the cropped version and they look great a little loose..
I mean it looks ok in the top picture with my standing like that, but I'm fairly sure I can't have that stance/facial expression at all times. Although I do have my mouth open a lot..
So I cut a size 14US, going by my bust measurements.. but I'm thinking I should have gone a 12, or even 10!
I took some pics, so you guys could let me know what you think?
See how big it looks? and I'm not just talking about my ass.
I realise this is not the same shape, but took a pic of another jacket I have just to show you the shape on mwa..
Im thinking the only way I could fix it is to unpick the lining, unpick the pockets, unpick the side seams and take them in, and do the same with the sleeves..
UGH. I really don't want to have to do that, but I don't see any other way? :(

Serious Addiction

Turns out I have an addictive personality.. who would've thought.
So you already know about these two..

But I Maayyyyy have made number three...
and by three I mean four...
which of course means five.
(this one is different with a gathered skirt, so really it doesn't count?)

OK so I love Elisalex. Sue me.

ps.. I totally also made one for a friend
 I made them all for specific occasions. Kinda.
I DID make number five to wear with these babies..
for joint bestie birthday celebrations, which were last night, hence my terrible hungover/slept on hair and the serious lack of ironing in the above pics.
ps. my Birthday totally isn't until the 29th, but i pretty much milk the whole month, every year.

The night started with me being tipsy excited..

 then a little of this happened..
and some of this..
 and therefore it ended with a lot of faces like this.
