2 Girl holding fan in ball dress
How did Antoine's sisters dress for the ball?

Antoine: My sisters can't wait for the Twelfth-night Ball. They love to make themselves beautiful and think all the men will flock to dance with them.

Now that I am twelve, they expect me to put on a mask and run up and down the streets with the other lovesick sillies, knocking on doors and begging for gifts for the ball. You're a man now, they say. You're a man!
