Braddock Day Ball

I'm very slowly catching up! Here are photos from the Braddock Day Ball at Gadsbys Tavern. The date was 1755. For whatever reason, this ball didn't sell out and it was a relatively small crowd. (Unlike the 1790s Birthnight Ball which was packed.) But that meant more room for dancing! I rewore my Princess Caroline sacque. I really should have bustled it up because I was getting stepped on a lot. I settled for tucking the train into my pocket slit and that worked well enough.

A bunch of these are Gloria's - not sure I caught them all with individual credits - though I did on Flickr itself. (

It was nice to see Alexa and Clayton again, in their awesome matching outfits.
