About the Costume

This elegantly embroidered coat and matching scarf has quite a fascinating history. It was originally created for the TV series The House of Eliott in 1994, where Stella Gonet wore it as Beatrice Eliott. According to both Louise Macdonald (the milliner who made the hat for The House of Eliott) and Cosprop, the coat was actually created from an antique tablecloth from the 1920s!

The coat went on to be used again in 1997 in Mrs. Dalloway on Katie Carr as Elizabeth Dalloway, and then again in 1998 in The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries on Eleanor Tremain as Dorothy Manners. It was used a second time in 1998 in the TV series The Grand, where it was actually worn as a dressing gown on Susan Hampshire as Esme Harkness. The coat was revived in 2002 in Bertie and Elizabeth, where Juliet Aubrey wore it as Elizabeth. The very next year, in 2003, it was used in The Forsyte Saga: To Let, where Beatriz Batarda wore it as Annette Forsyte. Finally, it was worn by Elizabeth McGovern as Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, in the 2012 third season of Downton Abbey. Interestingly, the scarf that accompanies the jacket was used to trim her hat. 

The coat still belongs in the costume collection at Cosprop and has been embargoed from further use in any other productions.

Costume Commentary

  1. I don’t think the embargo is permanent; it sounds as though it’s just during Downton Abbey’s run. (You might recall that several regency gowns appeared in multiple Austen films during 2007-2008.) The embargo on this embroidered coat is likely to insure that other projects do not use the piece so soon after it appeared in Downton Abbey.

    I wonder if Cosprop charges extra for this stipulation? If so, I wonder if all Downton costumes are being embargoed, and what the length of the embargo might be? Some costumes from Downton appeared soon afterward (1-1.5 years later) in Fellowes’ Titanic mini series.

    • This make sense. Kind of like how Mary’s Green dress appeared far too early in “Parade’s End” before Downton had really finished…
