The Commercial Pattern Archive at the University of Rhode Island is a collection of 25,000 electronically scanned patterns and envelope covers for clothing dating back to 1868. Even if you can’t journey to visit the actual archive, you can search a digital catalog on disk from the University. Just browsing the few sample patterns on the web site is loads of fun. The project is part of the “Save America’s Treasures” initiatives. [via]
