A couple of weekends ago, I attended a regency themed ball here in Stockholm. The group that arranged it is almost entirely focused on dancing, and since I don't dance I wasn't sure if I was going to attend. But the temptation that was being able to wear 'something regency' for once became too big so I decided to go.
And I'm so glad I did! The evening consisted almost 100 % of dancing, but I included myself into a small group of friends and acquaintances (among those fair Elisa and lovely Mamsell K.) that wasn't too keen on dancing and we had a lovely evening. since the dancing took place in the main house, we had a small wing almost to ourselves and we played cards, talked, laughed and ate and drank all night long. I had a blast!
And I had a new gown. The inspiration was this 1814 fashion plate from Incroyables et Merveilleuses de 1814:
And my version:
I was ready so early and made my husband take some pictures around the old manor house near where we live.
