Regency Dance - thinking about what to wear
Beginners’ Dance Workshop' at the Jane Austen Festival. So I thought I really should think carefully about what I choose to wear. For one thing I think I will have to have my hair dressed differently. And secondly I'm thinking about hem length.
I don't want it to drag along the ground/get caught up in my feet when dancing but I don't want it too short so it spoils the effect. And as essentially I only have one dress (one petticoat and one open robe). I'm going to have to find a way of stopping it getting dirty/smelly so I can wear it twice. Maybe it will add to the authenticity?
I wonder if there's a launderette near the B&B? lol! If worse come to worst I am packing my modern maxi dress which will probably 'pass'.
