My twitter stream and Google reader are both abuzz with comments about Downton Abbey. I am completely in love with this show and those that know me will be un-surprised to hear that I am captivated by the costumes. So, for all of you that love it as much as I do, here is a set of free embroidery patterns just for you, inspired by the costumes of Downton. “Mary” is inspired by a black beaded choker. It would make a nice edging embroidered on something with french knots for those beaded chains. “Anna” is a detail from the edge of a tiny lace collar. “Dowager Countess” comes from a green and purple ensemble with ribbon embroidery. “Sybil” is inspired by the embroidered bodice of the infamous “harem pants” outfit. “Edith” is from a detail on the sleeve of a black and gold evening dress. These aren’t exact replicas, but my take on the design. Click the image above to download a full sized .pdf you can print and use.
