Research Tip Tuesday

Another great writing research tip from Tara McClendon!

"For history writers, a good source of information can be histories of fashion. Often these books have drawings and definitions for terms used during specific eras. C. Otis Sweezey
provides a Web site with information on a text published from 1861 to 1880. Other modern books provide a look at a wider range of eras."

Tara is a freelance writer and editor. She maintains her own blog Eye Feathers.

Thanks Tara! Anyone else have any favorite web sites they frequent for historical research? Please share them in the comments.

  1. I don't, but I've seen some great ones in my googling. They dress and undress people in period clothes (sounds bad, but is very valuable).

  2. I like this tip--I don't write period stuff (yet) but I like the idea of being able to visualize your characters through what they wear.
