I’m hoping this is the right topic for this: just wanted to say how impressed I was by the costumes in the last episode (the Lallybroch episode). For me the best costumes were the working clothes, with patches and what looked like engrained dirt, looking as if they’d been worn and used many times. And I just noticed that the leather belt/strap over Jamie’s right shoulder looks as if its been loosened as he grew taller – you can see the wear marks where the buckle’s been. Love that sort of detail. But I coveted that exquisite embroidered apron Jenny was wearing and was that really a Shetland shawl Claire wore over her nightdress? One of those ones that are so fine you can pull them through a wedding ring? So very beautiful. And so very appropriate.
