  1. Thank you. Did you know that Worth did a harem pants fancy dress way back in the 1870s? It kinda reminds us of Lady Sybil’s.
    And Lady Rose wore pink puff hair thingy at dinner first night, she was in something else pink for Lady Edith’s wedding.
    I loved all the costumes each younger Crawley/MacClare wore.
    More later.

  2. Rose was indeed a debutante in the truest sense, she’s wearing more specifically a Court Presentation version of a Lavin’s robe de style, with train and ostrich feathers. I never much liked this style, but it certainly was cutting edge for it’s time.

  3. That first picture of Lady Mary is so wonderful… I never liked her character, but she went from spectacular to dowdy over the years…

    I read that Lady Rose’s wedding dress was an original, but never worn. I wonder what the story is behind that. It’s such an amazing gown.
