Check out Amazon Drygoods, 2218 E. 11th St. Davenport Iowa.
They have a mail order catalog that has lots of patterns for period dress. 1-800-798-7979 (orders only), or 1-319-322-6800. Their Patterns of the Past Catalog runs about $5. You can also get some good reference books about period dress from their general catalog. Hope you're a good seamstress because period costumes are challenging! Good luck!
P.S. I'm pretty sure they have a website, though I don't know the address.
