Last week Paul and I, along with our friend and her daughter (the daughter is in the process of choreographing a Regency dance for her school's production of Pride and Prejudice) went to St. Mark's Church in Evanston for their biweekly English Country Dancing. I spontaneously decided to dress up. My recent weight loss enabled me to fit back into my Regency stays, and a gown I made several years back. I even found enough time to do a Regency hairstyle.
The dancing was fun. We were all a bit confused, but the more experienced people helped guide us into the proper places. I would like to do this again soon. Below are some photos of me in my gown, and my hairstyle. (Please excuse my wrinkled appearance; although I had ironed my dress prior to dressing, it got very wrinkled in the car ride to pick up our friends and drive to the church.)
