I am (finally) watching the final season of Downton Abbey! I always have a hard time accepting that certain things I love are coming to an end. The final season of Downton Abbey has some drool worthy 1920s era clothing. (Every season has had such gorgeous costumes though!) I thought I would start documenting them on the blog since the show has ended and it will be a lovely way for me (and maybe for you) to revisit the Crawleys and all the wonderful characters at Downton. These particular screen caps are from Season 6, Episode 1.
The costume designer, Anna May Scott Robbins, has really done such an impeccable job on the wardrobe. In every episode my eyes always light up seeing certain fabrics, embroidery details, a little necklace, a small brooch… the attention to detail! Praises and praises to Anna and the wardrobe team!
In this shot we see the full outfit Edith wears and a back view of the stunning embroidered silk jacket Cora, the Countess of Grantham, is wearing. I love the matching pale green drop earrings and long bead necklace Edith is wearing! The shot below we get so see the beautiful embroidery detail on the sheer sleeves of the dress Edith wears and the charming pockets and the gold belt buckle! I would wear this outfit in a heartbeat!
The two outfits above are only seen for a few seconds and I couldn’t really get a good capture of it. There’s also a beautiful wine colored coat Mary wears briefly with the silk 1920s dress below that I couldn’t get a good picture of either.
Oh goodness! There are so many outfits and these mostly just of the Crawley women! Can you imagine what a treat it must be to work in the wardrobe department? I didn’t even screen cap every outfit! It’s really hard to screen cap the clothing when the actors are moving. No matter what, the images are always a bit blurry.
Anyhow, I hope you guys are enjoying my On The Set series! Eventually, once I have enough on the roster I’ll do a themed post like “Lady Mary’s Silk Kimonos”

*disclaimer* / I am sharing these screen caps because I am a big fan of Downton Abbey and appreciate the enormous effort that the wardrobe department goes through not only for aesthetics but for date accuracy. My hope is to learn more about Edwardian/1920s fashion. So, these posts are in some parts me being a fan girl, but in other ways for research.
