Norwich Regency Ball

Last night we attended the Rose City Assembly, a Jane Austen themed ball, in Norwich, Connecticut.  This was the second year of this ball, which hopes to become a growing annual event.  It was a smaller group of about 30 attendees who were all festively attired for the occasion.  Peggy, our instructor from our regular New Haven group,  came to call the dances.  I attempted to pull together a new Regency gown for this ball, but unfortunately could not find the time to finish it.  I hope it will be ready for our next ball in a few weeks!  So, even though it was not with the Jane Austen/Regency theme, I ended up wearing my blue/yellow changeable sacque gown again.  We justified our 1770s attire by saying we were representing the year of Austen's birth!

Guests at the Rose City Assembly enjoy refreshments.
