At our homeschool co-op this semester there was a class offered called Civil War Ball Gowns and the girls taking the class made some really fabulous ball gowns with an authentic pattern. At co-op night (two days after the ball), they did a fashion show in which the telling of the gown making was just wonderful! (great job Lisa!). So, without further ado...the ball!
|Dan is wearing a leather vest and black dress pants with ribbon tie and for the ultimate effect, his grandfather's pocket watch- shined and in perfect working order. Is he handsome or what??|
|E12 is in that picture with Dan, but I split the photo in accordance with Blog, She Wrote picture posting rules. E12 is wearing navy blue corduroy both his dress pants and his vest with a black ribbon tie. He would love a pocket watch!|
|Gowns and hoops! At the fashion show we learned that doorways of old were big to accommodate the 5 foot diameter of a hoop!|
|More dancing and milling...aren't those gowns fun?|
