Now that the problem seems to have mended itself, I want to re-post some links heileen was kind enough to share, mostly for my own reference. If you haven't checked these out be sure you do -she is always finding the coolest European sites! :>
First from the Museum La Mode Retrouvée, an exhibition of late 18th and early 19th century clothing. Lots of yummies here, but the pics are sadly small. In French.
Second is an Italian collection from 1800-1920s. There are some gorgeous pieces, with good pics (be sure to click on the main pic to see the rest). In Italian (thanks goodness for pics! :>).
