As the plot takes unexpected twists and turns in PBS's highly addictive "Downton Abbey," fashion has broken free from the heavily corseted looks of the Edwardian era to the slimmer silhouettes of the early 1920s. Waists are moving down, skirts are moving up, and chests are flattening, says Susannah Buxton, the series' costume designer for Season 1 and part of Season 2.
