Downton Abbey Fabrics!

Here at Fancy Tiger Crafts, we have January 5th circled in our calendar as the day season 4 of Masterpiece Theater's Downton Abbey premiers! If you can relate to this, you have one more reason to rejoice: Downton Abbey fabrics are here! Andover fabrics has partnered with the Downton Abbey production team to design this licensed collection: The Women's Collection. The Dowager Countess, Mary, Edith, and Sybil each have their own line of fabrics inspired by the character's style. All the Downton Abbey fabrics are period-specific. These prints are even going to show up in future episodes of the show!

Dowager Countess

The Dowager fabrics feature refined blacks, purples and greys in detailed prints. These colors speak to the characters subdued color range. Although, as the series progresses she has been wearing a bit more color- check out those purples Countess!


Mary's fabrics are sophisticated designs in saturated jewel tones. She radiates a very classic style and we share the same love for these burgundy wears.


 Edith's collection introduces art deco flair and Edwardian colors. Edith is always seeking to impress with her consistent wears of fabulous prints and a very reliable color scheme: greens and corals.


Sybil's colors of dark seafoam, grey and mauve speak to her character. She was very bold with her attire for her time. She's inspired by the modern movement of the arts, this drives her personal style.

We also have some new 1920's patterns in- entirely inspired by Downton Abbey. I see dresses, hats, scarves, and parasols in our future!  Perhaps you might host a Downton Abbey sewing and viewing party? Or wear your new Downton Abbey frock to a premier?  Snuggle up under your new Downton Abbey quilt with friends. We can't wait to see what you make!

Love it! Sybil's is my favorite. How pretty would a quilt be from this collection?
