Maureen,
Unfortunately, I'll be out of town this weekend.  Sad  Otherwise, it would be fun to meet up.  Not exactly war era, but there is the Susan B. Anthony house.

Are there any on-line resources of pictures of fabric by date, or searchable by date? I found a pretty brown print over the weekend but it doesn't photograph well, so I wondered if I could check it out myself...
(tiny dark brown floral spray on a dull brown background that's nearly but not quit solid, slightly ombre,  would make a fantasticwash dress if it's ok... Spray is about the size of a penny, spaced the same.
Thank you,
Miss Lisa
Ps It's 45" wide and I got 6.5 yards of it...

Out of era, but where do I go for ladies' clothing information for the upcoming centennial of World War I?

I have indeed located good resources, but no Sewing Academy for 1914 clothing.

Does Sense & Sensibility cover this era?

Thank you!

I think Sense and Sensibility is more historically-inspired patterns with modern fit/construction/etc, not necessarily historically accurate.  Could be wrong on that, though. 

Hey!  We need some of you well-informed muti-era people out there to set up an accuracy-minded Sewing Academy equivalent for other eras!  Smiley

I have a question. The original dress on the Graceful lady, the green and white one with velvet trim. Is that beading in the center of the trim? Just what it looked like to me and piqued my curiosity.

Not sure which dress you're referring to -- could you provide a link?  If you mean the dress at the top of the page of the "silk dresses" section that has velvet trim around the fichu -- no, there is no beading.
