Back to:

This page has photos of actual 19th century garments, which I find useful for inspiration.  

Most of these photos were found on eBay and antique garment dealers, like: Maire McLeod Elegant VintageKaren Augusta Antique Lace & FashionAntique & Vintage Dress GalleryFiddyBeeTime Travelers1860-1890Rupert & Toby's CollectablesCarolyn Forbes Textiles & Vintage FashionsOld Threads Antique Textiles.

Another site with lots of excellent images is Démodé: Extant women's clothing 1750-1919.
