historically accurate dress forms

Melissa_Fox | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Does anyone know of a source for either historically accurate dress forms (Empire, etc.) or someone who teaches how to make them? I work for a small museum, and we’re considering making our own for several articles of clothing that we wish to display.

      *Melissa - try http://www.patternsoftime.com Charlsie who runs the site has collected together a huge selection from all over the place for pretty much all historical periods. I make Regency costumes as a hobby, and the couple I've made up from this site were excellent. And a lot easier than making my own patterns, which I did before! Good luck - there aren't many good sources - I'm in the UK and have to get them from the US!
