Costume Commentary

          • A while back, I spotted one with long fringe, perhaps from Cosprop’s stock, on a piano in Downton Abbey and one in The Brett’s, and also on a dressing table in The Duchess of Duke Street. I didn’t realize it was called a “shawl” or that it could potentially turn up as a costume.

            • I actually own one! – fringe and everything. My Great Grandmother owned it. We actually draped it…over the piano because that is what my grandmother did…we didn’t realize she was actually correct to do so, or that it had a name, or that we could wear it. I need to maybe go dig it up…I recall it was very pretty, but had a big stain, so we put it away…

              • Cool! FYI: There are lots of DIY suggestions online for removing stains from vintage textiles. It just takes patience and perseverance. Barring that, you might be able to give it a make-over and disguise the stained segment.

                P.S. This isn’t all that different from Scarlett and her drapery dress, lol.

                • Thanks – I will look into that!

                  You’re right, it’s not much different than the drapery dress!
