are there other’s than anyone would recommend. I am also looking for
Cival War Uniform Pattern’s to look at. Doc

    Check out Simplicity patterns (http://www.simplicity.com) for some ideas...under "Costumes" click on both "Adult" and "Period Costumes" as there are some possible offerings in each.  I like Simplicity (though they always need some altering for me, but I'm an odd shape), and as one of the "Big Four" they can be found in a lot of fabric stores.  You can also order direct from their website.

    How "period" are you going?  If you are trying for really authentic costumes and sewing techniques, you might want to check out   http://www.costumes.org  .  This is a wonderfully informative site with links to various other pages.  If you are just going for the look of the period without all the fuss, then Simplicity # 7274 is great.

    Are you sewing for the Union or the Confederacy?

      Right now I am just looking for more research area's besides some that

      I already have. I am interested in colonial 17th century, frontier, farmers, etc.

      Cival War 1860-65 Northern and Southern types of uniforms.


      I will check out the other sites also.
