Enjoy!"


Thank you! Gives you a good look at knee breeches too! You can see why Timms appreciated a good calf!

Yummy link!
I wonder how much pressure it would be for a young lady, making her debut at a large ball, to call out the dance forms!

Skyla (skyla99) | 53 comments When I was about 10, I got to tag along with my older sister to a ball that had some of the regency dances, they all wore costumes and I remember being really impatient about waiting till I was older to dance....they stopped having them :(

Glad they still do them somewhere, that was a lovely video... I really wish I was in a different era :)

Oh that's too bad. The Jane Austen Society of North America and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, England both have balls. I'm not a dancer so I spent the ball in the card room. I'm not good at cards either. I didn't stay long.
