They have a ton of pattern envelopes and pattern drawings on the site. If you can sew moderately well, you can use this to make patterns for period clothing.

Not sure if anyone is interested, but it's here

OMG I am glutting myself on the 1930s... the sleeves!
I seriously need to get myself a sloper made up so I can try adapting some of these.

Hoped they'd have diagrams for the 1800s stuff, but those mostly have just the Harpers Bazaar b/w picture, no diagrams.

This is the login page for it here There was a button next to it in blue I didn't see, but it works now, so yay?

Thanks Elaina. I was trying to date a 1970s reproduction tiered lace dress in one of the other threads and I found a tiered lace one similar to that style at COPA. I thought the dress might have been late 20s, early 30s and the pattern I found was from 1930. I'm getting closer but I'm not there yet.

Here's the other dress.

I also found this one from 1930. It's even closer.

Wow. I just spent all morning on that site. I'm way behind in everything.:eusa_doh:

I found the most in 1933 and 1934. I also found a lot a liked in 1926 & !927. I found some in 1935 and 1936. I liked a few peplum suits from the late 40s.

Thanks again for letting us know about this site.;)

I was just about to come here and post about it! Now if only I was experienced enough to use this. :( I wouldn't know how to enlarge anything or put them together without instructions.

I just spent the last 2 hours drooling over the flapper coats, and I don't really like the 20s!

My favorites are the early to mid thirties but there were some gorgeous 20s pieces from 1925 through 1929 represented. I agree with you the coats were marvelous.
