Hi! Just got back from the Jane Austen festival in Bath! It was amazing, and I am planning to go back next year! So brace yourslelf for a picture post!
Getting packed into the Assembly rooms tearoom to count us. We beat the Guinness world record of ''most people dressed in regency costume at one place''. There was 550 of us!!

Gathering in the Parade Gardens after the promenade
I bought this dress from a friend I made there, found out that two day dresses for one week were not enough. The bonnet and reticule were given to me as gifts!! Lovely, isnt't it?
