Downton Sundays

I have come across something rather wonderful that I’m excited to share with you – especially if you sew!

On Friday night, my husband and I popped into Fancy Tiger Crafts and my eyes were drawn to this: (pardon the quality of the photo, my phone is acting up)Downton_400eVINTAGEpatterns has created Downton Abbey style patterns to coordinate with Downton Abbey fabric by Andover.  The 1920’s are in full swing what with last year’s Gatsby and now Downton entering this time period.  1920’s memorabilia can be difficult to find so, creating it yourself makes a terrific option.  It is rumored that some of the pieces used on Downton Abbey are authentic and, therefore, not able to be washed.  Imagining the cast in beautiful, but stinky 1920’s era gowns creates quite a picture, doesn’t it?  I don’t see Maggie Smith tolerating that, do you?

Candidness aside, eVINTAGEpatterns offers beautifully illustrated pattern booklets from the 1920’s thru the 1970’s.  Loveliness like this is not to be missed!
