Birthnight Ball

Gloria, Mike, Taylor, Isabella, Glynnis, Amber and I all attended Gatsby’s 1790s Birthnight ball – a celebration of George Washington’s birthday. It was super fun and for once there were worse dancers than us! Yay!

I wore my new gown based on a 1790 fashion plate, which I was able to finish thanks to a snow day. I did style a wig for this too – trying to make fluffy pinned rolls like in the fashion plates of the era. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

This ball seemed to have fewer dancers but the rest of the party was packed! I was able to get a shot of some of the food though:
