Perusing the pattern books this week, I thought it is never too soon to think about the 100th anniversary and the Gilded Age convention in Newport. There are now so many great patterns by Vogue, Butterick, Simplicity and McCall (in the costume section of the catalogue and even under the wedding portion) as well as MANY businesses which will sew FOR you. I would hurry to get the patterns at least- and put them away for later. They will probably not be available in another year or so as Cameron's film becomes a dimmer memory. Here's a great site to start you off- takes an hour to surf all these links- got any good ones?
