I just adored this cuffed blouse Sybil wore in season 1 when she was trying to sneak a visit to see the vote.
I'm not terribly excited about the blue skirt she paired with it but look at the print on the blouse!
So yummy! And this blouse also shows up in season 2...
...on Edith while Sybil was away learning how to be a nurse. So in the spirit of having a sister who borrows your clothes, I named this the "How did that get there?" blouse. I have a sister two years younger than me but thankfully we have very different body shapes and she never stole my clothes. (But I may have adopted some things from my mom's closet.....)
I much prefer Edith's styling with this high waisted brown skirt. And I like it tucked in too! And check out the shoes. I've been worried about whether I need more than one pair of shoes to match my Dressing Downton outfits, but the Downton Abbey stylists seem to think it's ok to pair black shoes with brown and even white (Watch the garden party. Like half of the people are wearing black shoes with white and light colored outfits.)
Sybil also has a purple version of this blouse with a large surprisingly modern floral print.
She wears it to go hear the vote counted wit a fab grey suit with purple pin stripes. And I adore this hat!
I have one Dressing Downton project in progress, but this piece is up next. Look at this fabric I've picked out! I just have to find a good coordinating fabric for the collar and cuffs.
