Downton Abbey

Nick Briggs/Carnival Film and Television Limited 2013 for MASTERPIECE

Fancy Lady Mary's (Michelle Dockery) style?

Then you're in luck, because Carnival Films, the production company behind the popular period drama, is finally launching a clothing line inspired by the show, reports CNBC.

So, if you're a fan of Lady Mary's fashions, but are tired of sifting through vintage store racks to find the perfect drop waist dress or stylish sequined number to recreate her Edwardian era swag, you'll soon be able to hit a one-stop shop for Downton duds. 

Given the show's success and spikes in the sales of period piece wardrobe items since its premiere, a line seems a no-brainer. So, why did it take three seasons for the collection to launch?

"It's a very slow burn the moment you get into retail, it's extremely cautious, it has to test the established brand…No one wants to launch products if the show's going to be a flop," Carnival Films' managing director Gareth Neame explained to CNBC.

In addition to the clothing line, the company is set to release homeware, wallpaper, beauty products and stationery inspired by the show later this year, so that both your wardrobe and home can be Crawley  chic.

We'll raise a cup of tea to that!
