Downton Abbey finishes up it’s 5th season tonight and I can’t wait to see all the 1920s fashions. Downton’s fabulous fashion sense was always a big draw for me because I just love vintage styles. As I’m gearing up to watch this last episode, I’m making a list of patterns that I think would fit a few of my of my favorite characters from the show.
Check out what I’ve picked out below for characters past and present:
|This Embellished Beanie in Homespun® would look great if you had a bob like Lady Mary.||Little George would look very handsome in this Cabled
Vest in Cotton-Ease®.
|I can picture any of the upstairs Downton women wearing this Textured Raglan Jacket in LB Collection® Organic Wool!||Lady Rose often sports a very simple and stylish look on the show- making the Shaped Cabled Top in LB Collection® Superwash Merino a perfect fit for her!|
|Lady Sybil was a very empathetic character, so this Vegan Fur Poncho in Pelt® would be just perfect for her … if faux fur existed back then.||This Flapper Hat would be great for any of the ladies of Downton Abbey – upstairs or downstairs. Make it with Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® for a very cozy and stylish hat to wear. (note: this is a paid pattern)||Cora’s mother is a very fashion-forward woman and would definitely be seen wearing this Vintage Glam Turban in Vanna’s Glamour®.||This Car Coat in Wool-Ease® Thick and Quick® is perfect for any lady who’s heading up to London for business or pleasure.|
