This past weekend, I joined up with the local historic dance group for a regency dance recidal. The city celebrated “The day of Dance” and we were invited to perform some of our dances.
I wore my new yellow regency gown – which I just finished the same morning.And combined it with a new straw bonnet, fishu and white evening glowes.
The weater was sunny and everybody had dressed to the teeth in their finery.I love Annas parasol – one day I will own my own.

We spent some time walking around the city, awaiting our turn to enter the stage.
Jan and Soleveig.
Me and Calle awaitning our turn in the heat. I was glad I didn’t needed to wear one of those thick wollen frockoats.
Then it was our turn to enter the stage.And since I’m pretty new to regency dancing I can’t tell you the name of the dances (and seartanly not tell them apart in photos), so we will just have to pretend to know whats going on.
Gentlemen in the middle.

Since we were uneven, at least one lady had to rest, and sometimes more depending on the dance.
“Jenny pluck pears”love the elegance in my pose in this picture…
When the dancing was over we meet up for a quick summer goodbye, before we hurried of in different directions.
Some of the dancers from our group posing for the turists (and my camera).
My dress hold up suprisingly well, and I feelt rater good in it. I think it will have more outings in the future.
It was such a lovely event and perfect day, I didnt even thought about the sun baking my nose and upper arms all day – well, I did descovered it later that night though…
(I will never attend a costuming event without proper sunscreen again).
