After seeing pictures like this:

I gave them to my girlfriend (who studies textile) and thought she should make something similar for her to wear :)

However, we're both kind of interested in clothes, and Europe identitÚ (http://ewigeseuropa.canalblog.com/) (however excellent) didn't have more than a handful of good pictures of dresses etc, so if anyone knows of any good resources - or post pictures in this thread! - with paintings or photos that may contain alot of people from the renaissance, early modern times or simply rural areas with traditional clothing, that would be awesome.

Here couple of pics I found on Russian tolkienists web-source. Some of them are fantasy dresses but maybe your girlfriend would find them intresting too. :)

Woah, that thread was great. Found alot there, like that I should google for "Dirndl" to find sweet dresses, and more. Thanks.

A few of the dresses were nice, but as you said, they are more fantasy or too old to be interesting. Thanks anyway mate :)


Here's a site:

THE HISTORY OF COSTUME
By Braun & Schneider - c.1861-1880

That might be really interesting for both of us. I'll bookmark it. Thanks.
