Downton Abbey & Travels #2 #PBS #costumes #Thursdayblog #Rssos

Travels with Vicki and
Downton Abbey 2
And so our journey continues with this second post about the costumes of Downton Abbey.  


On the left is a riding habit and hat worn by Lady Mary. The skirt is split at the front and back with jodphurs underneath for decorum.

On the right is a dress and hat worn by Dowager Countess of Grantham, played by Maggie Smith. The bodice is of silk trimmed in black. Lady Violet wore purple for half-mourning.








The Earl and the Countess of Grantham wore these outfits at the Downton Village Flower Show. The Earl sports a light cream linen suit with a straw Panama hat. Cora has on a silk day dress and coat with black frogging and a large silk hat with net, flowers, and ribbon.
















A dusty pink evening dress in silk with a black net overlay, adorned with beads and sequins worn by Lady Mary at a dinner party when Sir Richard visits Downton. I was gasping.
