Today is my last day of vacation before starting my new job. I thought I would takeĀ  virtual stock of what I managed to sew during my vacation. Most of these items are long gone from my home because I like to make tiny clothes and I don’t have kids!

I really liked the circle dress/top pattern by that*darn*kat. Or maybe I just wanted to sew it without making any errors! Either way, I made five: two size 3 dresses, one size 2 top and two size 2 dresses. I opted to use prints for the body and solids for the neck and hem. I also prefered the look of a single button on each shoulder instead of two. I think it is easier to get done up and you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong button hole!

Here are my blog posts on these dresses:

I like all the prints for these dresses, but my favorite is the Giant Octopus in Natural. In fact, I love it so much I bought some more for my stash!

The most involved project was definitely the Octo Reversible Jacket for my nephew. The lining and arm also featured octopi.

Another ‘boy’ project was the Lion Kimono. I don’t understand the issue with dressing little girls in blues, greens and other ‘boy’ colours. I am sure my niece will rock this kimono if it survives her brother.
