I recently stumbled on some textile sample books at the Met.  Not all of them are from the period of this board, and not all are meant for clothing, but I thought I'd share them here anyway.  I put them all together on my Pinterest board for easy browsing Smiley

All link directly to the Met and I think all of them have multiple pages from the books.  I haven't had time to go through them all yet.  Still, they're quite fun and the variety is wonderful Smiley

Went looking and found Mrs. Barbara Brackman has reproduction fabric for sale. Beautiful fabric! Has anyone on here gotten fabric from her? How period-correct is she in dating her fabrics properly?

Barbara Brackman's material is accurate to the period.

It looks like she only sells fat quarters and doesn't sell full yards of fabric. Are her collections only useful for quilts or do they work for reenacting too?

If you hope to buy more than fat quarters, look for shops that carry the Moda/United Notions lines. The quality is good, or used to be, when I sold it, and it wears well. Some of the historic lines had such a nice tight weave, and sheen to the surface that it felt more like silk, than a cotton. Good stuff. Wink
