Commercial Pattern Archive

"For ONE WEEK ONLY the Commercial Pattern Archive at the University of Rhode Island is offering free online access. Login with the username "guest" and the password "pattern".
COPA has about 48,000 vintage patterns (including the small scale pattern piece images!) dating from 1868—2000."

These are mostly useful for inspiration, but worth a look for serious clothworkers.
