Downton Abbey Blessing Dress

Are you a Downton Abbey fan?  I would watch it for the clothes alone. As I watch, I am torn between the thoughts:
"Why don't we dress like that?"
"Gee these sweatpants are super comfy".

I really wanted to sew something inspired by the show, but since we don't exactly "dress" for dinner around here, I don't have a lot of opportunity to wear a lot of silk and lace.

One of my goals this summer is work on my neglected Etsy store.  What do you think of my Downton Blessing Dress and bonnet set?
