More 1840s inspiration

I came across all these old photos online and found them to be a great reference for hair and accessories a well as the dress style. For me i feel that photos,like extant gowns, are very helpful for understanding how the images and styles of the eras fashion plates were interpreted into real garments. This can really help achieve a more historically accurate look, as the devil is in the details when it comes to this stuff :) The earliest photo is from 1842 and the latest is 1849:
