Julie Andrews’ costumes in Mary Poppins (1964) shaped our image of how Edwardian Londoners would have looked like and still informs the nanny dress-code today. Moreover, Mary Poppins’ signature outfit of long jacket, flat hat and umbrella has become as iconic as the famous story itself.

Originally, the movie was set in the 1930s, however this was quickly changed to the Edwardian era.

Andrew’s main costume was a three-piece outfit made-up of a long jacket, skirt, white blouse with yellow stripes and little red bow tie.

    Wow, memories.
    When I was a little girl my Mom took my sisters first communion dress and turned it into Mary Poppins Sunday best for me to wear for Halloween. Needless to say, I loved it so much I insisted on wearing that dress to school, church, outside to play, everywhere I went! I was a drama queen even at the age of 6!
