A lovely find.

Many people out there might not appreciate that some of the most cutting edge designers in the UK spent quite a lot of time studding the historic costumes of their country and their evolution, prior to pulling them apart and re inventing them .

I, personally, think historic costumes are quite fascinating, as one tends to look at pictures of a particular time, never finding enough information about whether, for example, there was a way for those to respond to different elements or seasons... We know, for example, that in Victorian times, women would allow their cultural believes determine for them to wear the most completely unlikely outfits to the seaside...

I have now come across this lovely website called Sensibility, where you can buy historic patterns from as little as a dollar! How amazing is that!
