I did this as a reply to some one but then

I thought you all might like looking at this stuff
This is a list of links to Vintage clothing sites that can help with inspiration for your own get ups.
To see real examples of the colors,cuts and such of the style of clothing some one who is trying to pull off a stempunk look should check out...
You will wish to look at the stuff that dates Victorian to at the latest 1919 anything after the 1930s would be the dress of some one in a pulp story and such.

Go look drool over these things and have fun..If your good at sewing try your hand at copying some of these things.If I could sew that is exactly what I would be doing.

go have eye candy fun and maybe this will help some people out.

Can this post be added to memories or tagged so it can be referenced easily for newbies? There are so many great resources that are posted it would be nice to reference a specific site when someone asks.
