Free Patterns

I think this will be my most important post. FREE HISTORIC PATTERNS! Who wants to pay for a pattern anyway? I've found some free ones out there, but you'll want to determine if they're historically accurate enough for the interpretation you need.

The Sewing Academy (Elizabeth Stewart Clark):
Slatted Sunbonnet

    Chemise
    Drawers

    Basic Petticoat - example
      (white would be a better color)
      Bust Pads
      Pinafores - example

          Mormon Trek.net (more Elizabeth Stewart Clark):

          Sunbonnet (same as above) - example
          Petticoats (same as above) - example
          Shawl
          Apron - example

              Second Wisconsin:
