- Behind the Tapestry features an 1819 corset, quite handsomely made. The Costume Gallery on this site is also rather fun and informative to see.
- Lady Jane’s Wardrobe discusses a different type of gown – a work gown Not everyone during the Regency wore fine muslins, lawn, or silks. Many women had to wear work clothes as they prepared food in the kitchens, or worked outside in their gardens. The image below shows Cassandra Austen and Mrs. Austen in Jane Austen Regrets wearing simple gowns and work aprons.
- This Ebay guide to Georgian and Regency hair combs is quite extensive and comprehensive, and includes a variety of examples. The site is well worth a visit.
- Annie Gracie’s Costume Page features a series of photos of exquisite Regency gowns that (I venture to say) are rarely exhibited. Click here to see them.
