Downton Abbey Costume Exhibit

Shian 1-Edited
I recently visited Delaware, Wilmington to be specific, with some of my friends from college. (Go Gators!) This was our first trip here, and we decided to visit Wilmington’s beautiful historical estate, Winterthur. Winterthur was formerly owned by the Duponts, and is now a museum for all to enjoy. If you are a DC resident like me then Dupont will ring a bell for you (yes, they are one and the same). Their DC namesake is one of the city’s prettiest neighborhoods, and it has a really great nightlife scene.

Their Delaware legacy is a much more natural, slow-paced type of lovely. Rolling hills, an “enchanted forest” and tons and tons of antiques and history to tickle anyone’s fancy. However, one of the greatest things they have to offer right now- the Costumes of Downton Abbey exhibit, running through January 4, 2015. If you love this show as much as I do, then these photos will be a real treat and you should check it out yourself. Shown below are some of the amazing costumes worn on the show by various cast members. You may recognize the backdrop to the first photo from the opening credits to the show.

Harem Pants Info

The photos above show the Harem pant outfit worn by Lady Sybil, which was by far my favorite outfit in the collection and from the show in its entirety. Read the description above to learn about the tricky issues they encountered while constructing the costume.
