Historical Costume Pattern Resources

A friend and fellow cosplayer, Khamryn, sent me these wonderful links. 😀 They’re pleaces to get historial costume patterns and I hope they help you all out!

1. Reconstructing History – This site has quite a lot of patterns. They sell packages, Vintage patterns, Medieval patterns, Renaissance patterns, Carnival patterns, Eastern patterns, 17th century patterns, 18th century patterns, Regency patterns, Victorian patterns, Steampunk patterns, 20th century patterns, Equestrian patterns, embroidery patterns, and frock coat patterns. Prices for the patterns range from $10 – $125, with free shipping in the United States for orders over $100!

2. Amazon Drygoods – Another site with a lot of patterns. They sell Medieval patterns, Renaissance and Elizabethan patterns, 18th century patterns, Regency patterns, 19th century patterns, 20th century patterns, ethnic patterns, and interior design patterns. Prices range from $3 – $99.50, though I have no clue how affordable shipping is.

3. Past Patterns – This site, again, has a lot of patterns to choose from. They have 19th century patterns, 20th century patterns, and apron, children’s, men’s, and wedding gown patterns of different eras. Prices range from $7 – $55, but I have no clue about shipping.

4. Medieval Miscellanea – Another one with a ton of patterns. They have tunics, cotehardies, houpelandes, Italian Renaissance, German puff-and-slash, Tudor, Elizabethan, undergarments, capes, tabards, bags, purses, pouches, and Medieval military patterns. While you cannot order directly from them, they have a ton of places listed as merchants for them that you can order from.

Hope these help! If you have any others, please suggest away! 😀
