A Very Crawley Christmas with the du Ponts – Part 3

At the end of Part 2, we left poor Lady Edith at the altar.  Sadly, we were not the first to do so.  Now, it’s time to take a look at Lady Mary’s most beautiful clothes (I've saved the best for last!) and relive one of her most beautiful moments, as we conclude our tour of the Costumes of Downton Abbey at the magnificent Winterthur Museum. 

Can we ever forget Lady Mary’s fabulous spider web dress?

A Very Crawley Christmas with the du Ponts – Part 2

Welcome back, dear Readers, as we continue our tour of the Costumes of Downton Abbey at the magnificent Winterthur Museum.  In Part 1, I gave you a little background on Winterthur and the du Pont family, the American landed-gentry counterparts of the British Crawleys of Downton Abbey.  We began our Downton Abbey costume tour downstairs.  Now, it’s time to move upstairs to see what the well-dressed Crawleys are wearing. 

Let’s start with some of their favorite outdoor activities.

A Very Crawley Christmas with the du Ponts – Part 1

It was a dark and stormy night………..just kidding!..........actually, it was a cold and rainy morning as we three ladies piled into Earline’s SUV to begin our journey across three States.  No sooner had we buckled our seat belts than the rain had turned to sleet.  But we were prepared for any eventuality; we had packed bottled water, trail mix and lots and lots of chocolate. 

And suddenly, there it was.  The skies had cleared, and its lofty spires glinted in the sunlight before us.  We had reached our destination – Downton Abbey!!
