My Party Dress



I'll bet you want to see me dressed up like Jane Austen.  No?  Well, anyway, I didn't want to leave you out.  So I'm inviting you to the Persuasion Book Launch Party.  Drop by for some treats, to talk, or to get a book signed.  I'd love to see you.

I'm also signing this Saturday Feb 11 in Salt Lake City at the Redwood Seagull Book from 12-2 pm (1720 South Redwood Road, Salt Lake City.)

And don't forget about the blog tour!  Today you get two chances to win a copy of Persuasion: A Latter-day Tale.

The ball gown I made sort of looks like this, but not as good.

On Saturday night (2/11), my husband and I are attending the Jane Austen Society's Regency Romance Ball.  If you come to the ball or the launch, don't look too closely at my ball gown, okay?  I made it myself and the buttonholes are pretty much the worst I've ever seen.  I probably should have used velcro.  And, another thing--why don't patterns have vanity sizing?  Get with the program, Simplicity.  And, "Simplicity?"  hmmm.  Not so much.

My husband is threatening to come in a wet shirt ala Mr. Darcy. 


I'm still thinking about refreshments for the book launch.  Got any ideas for treats that would work well in a bookstore?

  1. Didn't like the sweet roll idea? I shouldn't eat them anyway, but I'll be there.

  5. I guess that means you won't be to our Wood Badge Bead Presentation? I am so glad - the ball sounds like a lot more fun and exciting. Please take pictures of you and Mr. Darcy all dressed up for the ball. I would love to see your dress.

  6. my temple dress in an austen style dress, and then I did another one to go with my husband's military costume.
    We might have to make it to UT one day for the Regency Ball - what a blast!

    I SO wish I lived closer :(
    But I hope you have a great time!
