gatsbygal: i was looking up historically accurate clothing as a bit of art inspiration and found the online museum of saudi arabian costume.  there’s a bunch more gems just like these and they’re all so beautiful and unique.  there’s also great information about the clothing, too, such as how they were made, who wore them, what fabrics were used, what the different parts of the costumes were called, etc.  just a really fun and informative site and i thought i would share my find.
