19th c. Clothing: 1870-1879

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 Vintage; Karen Augusta Antique Lace & Fashion; Antique & Vintage Dress Gallery; FiddyBee; Time Travelers; 1860-1890; Rupert & Toby's Collectables; HeartNSoul1; Old Threads Antique Textiles.

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