Costume Commentary

  1. This costume also makes an appearance in BBC’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s

    Tender is the Night
    1985
    Costume seen on an extra

  2. It’s been 33 years between Downton and the Duchess of Duke Street, and this dress seems to be very well preserved.

    Look at this picture, you can see the details in the bodice embroidery…

  3. No, this clip is from series one, look at the right, that’s Cora’s pale pink chiffon dress that she wears to the dinner party with Strallen, Cora wears the purple/pink dress when they’re discussing Downton as a convalesant home.

    • Yes, we know the image seen on this page is from series one. but I had also posted an image from series 2 (included in the post below) but the image was lost when the comments software was changed to a new provider. 🙂

  4. Sybil wears the gown in series 2, also. This image is from ep. 2.2, when Sybil defends the idea of turning Downton into a convalescent center for wounded officers.
