Riversdale 12th Night Ball

A bunch of us went to the 12th Night Ball at Riversdale (which included supper) and it was as delightful as last year! I was going to make something new but I just wasn’t able to get enough time for it. But I realized I had a drawstring dress with a purple sari with peacocks on it, that I had only worn once to a card party and didn’t really have pictures of. So I wore that, a new necklace and fan by In the Long Run (https://www.etsy.com/shop/inthelongrun), my tiara by TheMillineress (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheMillineress), my antique citrine earrings.

I also did make something new, a Georgian/Regency cloak – which I made using the Laughing Moon pattern. (http://www.lafnmoon.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=P135&CartID=1) I used non-period accurate dupioni that I had in the stash. I interlined it with a blanket fabric I had on had for warmth. And I didn’t have a ton of the dupioni so I only used it to line the hood, and I used a dotted cotton to line the body of it.

I love seeing Riversdale all lit up! It was way warmer than last year, no snow/ice on the ground.

Our menu – different chef than last year (because of a schedule conflict), but the food was delicious!!

We couldn’t all fit at one table, so here are selfies with both groups of our friends:

I failed at getting one pic where both of their eyes were open! LOL, oh well.

Group pic – there was much vigorous dancing and my wig had started majorly slipping off by then – I need to do something a bit different but otherwise I was happy with my hair. Oh well.
