Victorian fashion

As the basis for just about any steampunk outfit is true Victorian fashion (1837-1901), I thought I'd post a few inspirational images of what Victorian women wore. Tweek it with fun fabrics and trims!


(ok, this one is Edwardian (1901-1910), but it's so fabulous I don't care)












*Kyoto Costume Institute*







It is important for anyone who is looking for this more authentic look to notice that women did not wear corsets on the outside, show their ankles (except for sport, and only a bit), have their hair down, or appear in public without a hat. I hope these images are inspirational and helpful!

Deepest apologies, but aside from the motoring ensemble from the Kyoto Costume Institute, I no longer remember where I got these images from. I've been saving images for years just for personal research, so did not note the sources.
