Downton Abbey Finds: Season 2 Episode 1

Bates comes home after his mother’s funeral.  Look at that traincar.  I love it! The attention to detail in this show continues to astound me!

Sybil is packing to go to nursing school and flurrying about in this cute almost nautical skirt and blouse. Both pieces are quite wear-able and I wouldn’t be surprised if the sailor collar back comes back in style.


We meet Lavinia at a benifit concert. Mrs. Crawley, Captain Crawley, and Lavinia enter the room. I love Mrs. Crawley’s jacket. That would be so easy to make and would be a great addition to a wedding or prom dress.

Here we see Lavinia’s hair. I love the head band with the tear-drop. Very Art-Deco and unique.

I tend to be more excited about the day-wear than the fancy dinner dresses. No exception, I love this dress Edith is wearing. Again with the side row of buttons and not a super flattering color for her but I really like the shape and styling.

I’m excited to see new clothes in this season and I’m hoping we’ll see more of the house as well.

Also, if you haven’t seen the “History of Highgarden Castle” where Downton Abbey is filmed, I recommend it. It is a supplement to the second season as is available free on Amazon with and without a Prime membership.
