<<Does anyone know where I can find (hopefully easily available) books or
patterns on period French dress -medieval to Renaissance mostly, maybe a
little English dress from those periods. Noblewomen to rich
merchant(idealized rich peasant types).>>

_Medieval Costume in England and France:  The 13th, 14th and 15th Centuries_ 
by Mary G. Houston is a starting point.  It was originally published in 1939 
then republished by Dover in 19996 so it's fairly available.  Ms. Houston 
gives references for her line drawings so you can find the originals.
