|A Look at the exhibit|
The Downton costume exhibition is from the television series Downton Abbey. The exhibit is currently at the Winterthur estate in Delaware. We got to visit it over the weekend of March 22-23 with our friend Cristina.
Some of the lines from various episodes were painted on the walls of the exhibit to serve as a reminder of when a particular outfit was worn. Some were quotes from Lady Violet.
|One of our favorite snarky quotes!|
WHO IS VIOLET? - Sharp-tongued, witty Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham is the widow of the late Earl of Grantham, mother of Robert and Rosamund, and mother-in-law of Cora Crawley, and Marmaduke Painswick. She has three granddaughters, Lady Mary Crawley, Lady Edith Crawley, and the late Lady Sybil Branson
|Lady Sybil's Harem Pants|
|L to R: Rob, Cristina, Tom|
HAREM SCAREM - In one episode on Season 2, Lady Sybill, the youngest of the Crawley daughters (married to Tom Branson and whom died giving birth to a little girl) wore "harem pants." These pants apparently fell apart right after the filming of the episode! They were fastened together for the exhibit.
