A Day at Downton Abbey: Gorgeousness

Not much to say about these pieces beyond the title -- some of my favorites are below.  Mary and Sybil's outfits from Edith's wedding, Cora's embroidered jacket, some of Martha's ridiculous coats and one very fabulous hat.

Wedding Clothes

Mary's Hat 

Mary's lovely blue outfit
Sybil's amazing French knot dress
Originally this was a vintage top, and they added
fabric and matched the French knot motif

That many French knots.  My fingers ache
just thinking about them.

You can see the structure of the original top
here.  I can't imagine doing that kind of
reconstructive work.
Just gorgeous.  That's all I have to say here.

Amazing lace.

Bad photo, but you can see the lines.

Love the colors on this one.

Look, a polka dot lining!

This hat deserves its own page.

Not my favorite, but perfect for
the hat.

I saw some of these costumes in LA last year and didn't notice nearly as much as you have. Thanks for sharing your amazing eye for detail!
