"Lady Cora’s pink evening dress is an original dress found in a vintage shop. It was badly stained and needed a careful, and somewhat terrifying, wash to bring it back to life. Despite lots of TLC and careful re-beading it is still a bit sad in some places. However this shows the value of using something original even if it is very fragile as it would actually be far too difficult to re-create a new dress. The colour scheme is not one you would immediately think of but it works wonderfully on Elizabeth" - Caroline McCall
This was worn in the 2nd Christmas Special.
I added the last picture as a bit of fun - see the loose thread by the fold? Looks like Miss O’Brien’s been lazy!
