Downton Abbey: a third post about costumes #historicalcostumes #PBS #RSSos


Travels with Vicki and
Downton Abbey 3

This gown worn by Lady Cora is absolutely stunning. It's fashioned from silk with a net overlay and a beaded panel in front. If I remember correctly, the front panel was found and the dress fashioned around it. Dazzling.
















Equally dazzling is the day dress worn by Cora. It's a coat and dress with floral embroidery, won at Lady Edith's wedding. Fascinating note: the coat was created from a 1920's damask tablecloth. Who would have thought.














A ruby colored coat worn by Lady Mary. Velvet trim on the collar and cuffs. Leather gloves and a matching velvet handbag.
