Jennifer Mathis and I have so enjoyed chatting about season 4 of Downton Abbey. We fell in love with Mary in a whole new way, laughed at the Dowager Countess countless times with her one liners, gave Tom a second chance, wondered when someone/anyone would say something to the wild and mischievous Rose, and rooted for Mrs. Crawley as she came back with gusto after the loss of her son Mathew. As for the downstairs we love them all, well, except for Thomas. Can I get an amen on that one?!?!?!
I knew there was a Downton Abbey fabric line from Andover so I contacted them to see about a giveaway for the finale of season 4. I hate to say this out loud but the time has come and now we are waiting for season 5. The wait will give some time to sew and what better then to sew something up with fabric inspired by our favorite show, Downton Abbey. The collection is the women’s collection (I am so hoping for a men’s collection) and features fabrics that go along with each lady and their style and personality.
I really loved Sybil and have to say that her fabric collection is one of my favorites. I love the fabric in the middle in the picture above. I think they are so modern, tribal, but also classic and with just enough flash like Sybil. I am loving the colors in this collection as well because my color of the now is emerald green or any green for that matter. I like the mixing of the greens, blues, purplish pinks with a tad of yellow. I need a tunic out of the green middle fabric like right now.
As I look at the Sybil collection it makes me think of all of the jewel tones you see in Downton. They use them so well but they also don’t get shy about when and where. The setting as well as the clothes the characters wear are one thing we all love about Downton Abbey. I want that red sofa so bad I can picture me sitting on it.
Gotta love Granny!!!!
So what would you make with the Downton Abbey women’s collection fabrics? Which ones are your favorites? Leave me a comment and let me know and I will pick someone to win some of the fabrics from the collection courtesy of Andover Fabrics. I wanted to keep this one simple and sweet just like the times of Downton Abbey. 🙂
