The Countess of Grantham's Geometric

The geometric is a compilation of the details of the embroidery on the Countess's dress and sleeves.

 

History: In 2015 I sold three geometrics I adapted from wonderful costumes worn by the Countess of Grantham, Lady Mary and Lady Edith in Downton Abbey.

 

When I saw how well each geometric fit into the top of a Sudberry box, I decided to expand the collection to include a needle book and a scissors fob.

 

I offered the series a number of times, based on the final season of Downton Abbey and then repeatedly by request.

Descriptions of the Geometrics

All three geometrics are the same size: approximately 6", suitable for a box top or framing. Recommended: a 10" square of 18 mesh canvas.

 

Suggested threads: Pepper Pot silk, Planet Earth silk, Kreinik braids and pearl cotton.

 

Instructions for Countess's Geometric:

16 pages, plus title page and color copy.

 

Instructions for Lady Mary's Geometric:

20 pages, plus title page and color copy.

 

Instructions for Lady Edith's Geometric:

18 pages, plus title page and color copy.

Descriptions of the Three Needle Books

All three Needle Books are the same size, approximately  3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square. Each Needle Book uses many of the same stitches and threads as its coordinating geometric.

 

There are four pieces to each needle book: back, front, inside front and inside back. The back and the front are the same pattern.

 

The design is stitched on 18 mesh 'soft ivory' (color) canvas 11" x 11" square.

Suggested threads: Pepper Pot silk, Planet Earth silk, Kreinik braids and pearl cotton.

 

Instructions the Countess's Needle Book are 17 pages long, plus a title page and a color copy of the finished needle book. The instructions include directions for assembling the needle book.
