Riversdale Fancy Dress Ball

The lovely Riversdale House had a fancy dress regency ball in October, the weekend our friend Conley was in town, so we got tickets.

I didn’t have time to sew anything new, but since I did have a 1790s gown that was based on a fashion plate, I called it good enough!

Here’s the house:

Poor Doug needs another waistcoat and another coat, but I just haven’t had time to do anything about it. :-( At least he has different colored socks that we picked up at Fort Fred.

They had a picture frame so you could get your portrait. That was kind of fun!
