A close up of the overjacket. I haven't got a photo of the back but it has a fantail.

Like the last two balls that they held, it wasn't fabulous - there wasn't enough food for everyone, not enough chivalrous men to ask ladies to dance (there were loads of men) and not really that much room to dance (it was a bit like regency bumper cars but without the cars and whilst dancing!!).
The food for around 60 people - there might have been just enough but people were going up for seconds before others had even had firsts!!
It wasn't all bad though, a great more people dressed up this time (I had great fun looking at some of the beautiful costumes :)), and as it was lovely weather the beginning of the ball was held outside in their version of the Vauxhall Gardens. The Ball was held in the Georgian Group headquarters which is a town house in a lovely Georgian square in London. In the middle of the square their is a lovely garden which became the "Vauxhall Gardens" for the evening. But most of all it was lovely to spend time with friends and to dress up in Regency clothes :).
