The 12-Dresses Ball

The Good Time Regency girls were invited to a unique party. A member of an English Country Dance group that operates out of Toronto Ontario had suggested that they do a costumed ball. Many of the members responded that they did not have anything suitable to wear, so the member who suggested it offered to sew dresses for the ladies and vests for the men. I had never heard of such an undertaking and was rightly impressed. So the event was nicknamed the “12-Dresses Ball” and the Good Time Regency Girls were all honored to receive invitations to the party.

  1. This is wonderful. I do English Country Dance in NY, but am attending a Ball in Decatur, GA, so I was researching Regency Turban styles and came across this page. Great idea.
