Birthnight Ball

We attended the Birthnight Ball at Gadsby's Tavern last night. Just the ball, not the banquet. We actually had dinner at Warehouse Bar & Grill, and it was delicious.

Here's a group pic:

I made a drop front dress from the Laughing Moon pattern I used for my white and silver striped one: http://www.lafnmoon.com/product_p/p126.htm

I used a silver tissue sari embroidered with bullion that I got at the Great Fabric Giveaway at the Pumpkin tea! My tiara is vintage teens/20s: http://costumersguide.blogspot.com/2014/08/vintage-tiara.html

I wore this little late Victorian Star brooch: http://costumersguide.blogspot.com/2016/01/star-brooch.html
