For all of you asking about good costuming resources in regards to my historical Disney princesses, here's an initial list:

ON THE INTERNET!
Demode Couture (There are so many links I could post that are already compiled and organized beautifully on Kendra VanCleave's site.  Absolutely worth your time.) demodecouture.com/links/
The Costumer's Manifesto (cluttered but deep, lots of good links hidden away in the fray) www.costumes.org/
Wikipedia (surprisingly useful!  Great for when you're trying to initially pin down a period.) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_…
For some unadulterated extant dress porn, Tumblr is a fantastic point of reference:
oldrags.tumblr.com
defunctfashion.tumblr.com
omgthatdress.tumblr.com
yeoldefashion.tumblr.com

BOOKS!
Some great overview/survey books:
A History of Costume www.amazon.com/History-Costume…
What People Wore: 1,800 Illustrations from Ancient Times to the Early Twentieth Century www.amazon.com/What-People-Wor…
What People Wore When: A Complete Illustrated History of Costume from Ancient Times to the Nineteenth Century for Every Level of Society www.amazon.com/What-People-Wor…
Fashion (Taschen 25th Anniversary) (amazing extant gowns) www.amazon.com/Fashion-Taschen…

Any and all of the "fashion in detail" books:
Nineteenth Century Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Nineteenth-Cent…
Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Seventeenth-Eig…
Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700 - 1915 www.amazon.com/Fashioning-Fash…
Underwear: Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Underwear-Fashi…
Dress in Detail From Around the World www.amazon.com/Dress-Detail-Ar…

For sheer variety during the Victorian/Edwardian eras, any photographic books or collections of fashion plates are great:
Victorian and Edwardian Fashion: A Photographic Survey www.amazon.com/Victorian-Edwar…
Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from "La Mode Illustree" www.amazon.com/Victorian-Edwar…
Victorian Fashions and Costumes from Harper's Bazar, 1867-1898 www.amazon.com/Victorian-Fashi…

I'm sure I have more (I know I have more, in fact), so I'll try to keep updating this on a regular basis. :)

Most of these links focus mostly on 16th-19th century fashion. Would you happen to have any sites you like to use to research 12th-14th century fashion?

Thank you so much. 
I was actually going to ask you if you for this same information so I could research for an idea I had for a character dress design I'm working on.

You wouldn't happen to have resources on ancient/medieval Japan would you? (Specifically the Sengoku Period?)
