    Older European clothing - paintings, pictures, etc

    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 identité (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.

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