For a project I am about to take on I think it would be cool to have the people dressed in period clothing.  We're looking at a time between 1850 and 1920 I think.  Does anybody know of any patterns for women's clothing that look like clothes from back then?  I hope that makes sense.  Basically I'm looking for costume patterns for clothes that fit the time between 1850 and 1920.  Nothing too upper class, and most likely no mens clothing, it's only ladies doing this project with me.

Please and Thank You!

I did a search on ebay and found patterns for undergarments and a night gown..

look here to see it

so maybe they have other patterns there occasionally too?

One of the patterns has this name on it:

Simplicity Vintage Closet of the Century to 1925

Maybe if you search by that??

Yes yes yes!  Go to http://www.sensibility.com/pattern/ and hit one of the links on the left -- either Edwardian or Titanic/Teens will fit in the time frame you mentioned.  I have not sewn one of her patterns yet but her website is wonderful -- lots of photos of finished gowns, and even step-by-step online instructions for some of her patterns.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

I love Sense and Sensibility patterns. I have made the regency dress multiple times and am just starting the tea dress. They are very easy to make and the patterns are very versatile.

That's very good to know!  I made a regency dress a  few years ago from the "Past Impressions 1809 Day Dress" pattern, and am planning to buy the Sense and Sensibility patterns for the regency dress and spencer to make with
my beginning-seamstress cousin this summer. I think the online tutorials will be great for her to learn from and will save my sanity (I get somewhat impatient when teaching people to sew, hehehe). And I LOVE that tea dress too!  Might need to buy that pattern while I'm at it Smiley   Hey, got any photos of the dresses you've made?
