Belles of the Ball

One of the highlights of my recent trip to Wisconsin was the Civil War Ball, hosted by my wonderful friend Libby S. Besides waltzes, there were old-fashioned country dances, called by Mr. S., and some square dancing, called by Libby's brothers.

Laura and I. I made Laura's dress. My dress was borrowed, but just right. Hoops were an interesting adventure.

Me and Libby :)

  1. Great pics! Looks like you had a lot of fun!

  2. Looking good Liz! I like the colors you chose for your dress. I'm sure it was quite fun. There is a gentleman who comes into McDonald's regularly named Eric Tangman who is a square dance caller. I believe he has done square dance calling in McHenry before, you might know him. This is Shane, by the way.

  3. Yes we know him! He is a great creative caller.
