Hello everyone! I wasn't exactly sure where to put this, but thought this was probably the most appropriate area. Anyway in a few days theres going to be a Charles Dickens festival and I wanted to whip something up fast. When I went to my local Joanns all the patterns that I liked were not in my sizeplus the selection was not that good.
One of my favorite historical sewing pattern sites is Sense and Sensibility, which gives the options to print pdfs, unfortunately they don't have victorian era, which is around the time of dickens(1840s) Im looking for a site that has pdfs for I don't have enough time to wait for something to be mailed, as Im really on a time crunch! If anyone knows any sites that have the pdf option like sense and sensibility I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!!!

I can't give a recommendation for a PDF bodice pattern, but a 1840s-50s skirt is really easy to make without a pattern.

Just pleat or cartridge pleat 4.5 metres of fabric on to a waistband your size, leave a placket so you can get into it, and fasten with hooks and eyes.

I've got a tutorial for a drawstring petticoat and a tutorial for an easy, cheap, hoopskirt on my website that may help you.

For a your bodice, many modern blouses can be adapted to look reasonably 1840s. If you are really ambitious you could attempt one of the free period patterns here

Have fun! Is this the SF Dickens Fair?
