Historical Links

Hello lovelies, 

most of the time my research is purely online and therefore I have amassed a massive amount of ressources for sewing, lolita- and historical fashion. I will put each of them in only one category, even though a few might me applied. If you don't find what you are searching for or find a dead link, leave a comment. Thank you.
