will be interesting to see this patterns too.
i manage to get 2 books about victorian fashion, but many others can be very useful for designing and making victorian costumes.

There are tons of places that I can recommend. Most people would suggest Parrons on 40th and 8th. I suggest it too, but I would also say, don't stray from the lower street shops. I work on 35th street, between 7th & 8th, and there is at LEAST 2 fabric stores that I constantly shop that have way cheaper fabric then even Parrons. I would say wear flats, carry a rolling suitcase, start at 40th & 8th, walk down, and then walk right back on up! There's lots to be had. By the time you leave you will be tired, and your bags full! Set a budget! Any other specefic questions, just let me know!
