      Hello, Robert!

      I am not a vintage clothing dealer, but I have links to a lot of them and there are more on eBay. I recommend shopping around, because there are so many beautiful gowns from this time period–and you can often find vintage display mannequins on eBay as well!

      Warm regards,

    Do you know where I can get a pattern for a similar bodice? These bodices are quite similar to the one on a 1909 wedding dress I bought that I woulde like to recreate. I can copy the skirt pattern myself and get that to match exactly, but I am intimidated by the bodice!
