Historic Pattern PDF's from LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has been quietly building a world-class Historic Dress collection--and suddenly they sat down and DRAFTED PATTERNS for all of us to make our own suits and gowns! And oo la la they have some nice ones! The patterns look adaptable for dolls, though I believe they are faithful repros of the original garments (translation: they will be small for modern humans). The pdfs even include context and measurements and notes about notions. Here are some of the nice people working on this project:

Many thanks to them and to Akutenshi, who sent me the link!
