Wow, the night turned out amazingly well. Only 21 at the table... and it was an intimate, wonderful affair. Everyone was dressed ot the nines (except me... I keep recycling old and used stuff... I *have* to make a new gown for the birthday ball).
Anyway... the event sold out, the food was amazing, the ambience was as if we'd floated into th epast... we danced, we played whist, we laughed and laughed.

Just popped in to say hi and to see what's been going on in the Regency world, and saw these beautiful photos. This looked like a wonderful event, and I'm jealous not being there. I'm not working on anything Regency at this time so have nothing to contribute. I'm almost done with two 1860s gowns I'll be wearing to the Riverside, CA Dickens Fair on Feb 6/7, in the fashion show. This is a whole new era to me, so it's been a struggle to figure it out. We are considering a Regency luncheon at a British pub/restaurant in March but I may have to recyle something I already have if I can't make anything new. I have two Edwardians I want to make for August for Costume College, and those need a corset too. Oh my. It never ends. Keep on making beautiful things, ladies!
The photos you've posted look lovely. I wish I could have been to any of the winter occasions. Events at the beginning of November ruined the rest of the year for sewing or really any activity, and now employment and preparing for a steampunk wedding (housemates', not my own) leave little time for Regency sewing. I do mean to be back, though! You couldn't keep me away.
