|Downton Abbey by Andover Fabrics|
The Women's Collection
I am a huge Downton Abbey fan, and have watched all of the first three TV series more than once. Much more than once as it loops on my Ipad whilst I cut, sew, or quilt. From the very first episode I was enthralled by the setting; the clothing, accessories and yes, the storyline. With each repeat episode I see more of the details such the the soft furnishings, the trimmings, textiles, and accessories. A fascinating look at a bygone era.
The first exclusive collection of licensed fabrics of Downton Abbey for Andover Fabrics is The Women's Collection with color and design palettes inspired for the women upstairs: The Dowager Countess, Mary, Edith and Sybil - the lead female characters in the tv series. It sounds like this is the first of several collections!
Admittedly, these will be my challenge fabrics for 2014 - I LOVE them and the bundle has been eye candy on my cutting table for a week or so - but they are well outside of my comfort zone (and I see so much purple!).
