other places to look.
The big question is 'when'? Are you looking for Heian period, or the
sparser wear of later years? Western contact (16th
Century--Momoyama-Azuchi Era) or not?
Kass' page is an excellent place to go look. If you are interested, I
might be able to get more stuff to you if you know what you want (although
the basic patterns seem to stay fairly constant, for the most part, at
least compared to western dress.)
