I get a lot of my patterns off Burdastyle. The only downside to them is that they are digital patterns you have to print off. For me that's actually a good thing because I tend to lose pattern pieces (you can print it off as much as you like).

These two may work: . . . . . .

Etsy (I get a tonne of vintage patterns here), eBay, Vogue patterns, Butterick, McCall's and Simplicity are also good places to get patterns. Vintage patterns are a little difficult to work with unless you know how to scale and also rarely, if ever, come with instructions. Look more at wedding dresses and not so much costume dresses. I never particularly found costume patterns to be worth the money. They tend to skip important features such as boning and floating linings.
