There is a substantial body of literature describing clothing styles over time.
Here are several data bases with extensive references. Often there
a few volumes
on childrens' clothes or children's clothes are only part
of the book. I would be most interested in any information you have
books on clothes and costuming. In addition, please let me know of
any other interesting bibliographical
lists that you may have come across.
