Several years ago, there was an annual regency ball in Lansing...it moved to South Bend for a while, but now it's back in Michigan so Samantha, Julie, my mom, and I all snapped up tickets and made a night of it.
It was a very bustling event, with the floor just bursting with dancers all night long. It had been a long time since I'd done anything but Civil War dances and it was great fun to get back to my roots, so to speak. The style is quite different, and the dances were really beautiful to watch as well as dance.
I managed to finish a new dress for the evening; it was the one I started last June, hated the sleeves, and quit working on for six months. I'll post about it soon; I still want to make undersleeves for it, and it was just dark enough not to photograph terribly well in the low light.
A beautiful evening all told, and I'm thrilled for the ball to be back in Michigan. I'm already looking forward to next year!
