About four years ago I purchased a sewing machine and started a new tradition - the tradition of the Thanksgiving Debut - which is basically exactly what it sounds like. Around the holidays I work on a new project and bring to it Thanksgiving dinner for its "debut." The first two years I "debuted" dresses that I sewed for myself by wearing them to dinner. Last year, still in a post-partum haze, I decided that bringing my six month old would count as a "debut" (after all, I did make her!). This year, I've decided to debut a dress for Baby O (much more manageable nowadays than a dress for me).
Behold...this year's dress.
...And The Back
Made with the pattern for the Ice Cream Social Dress by Oliver and S. (Any mistakes in this dress - and they are definitely there - are all of my own making, not caused by this amazing pattern company).
