I am very interested in this pattern, Vogue 1098.  My mother made this suit for her wedding in 1950, when she eloped with my father. I had always planned to copy this suit for my anniversary (I could never wear my mother's as I am much taller) -- however, I found out that she gave the suit away.  My mother died in 2006 and I have no suit to copy and no pattern to follow.  Please let me know if you are aware of a method to acquire the pattern or a copy of it.
