Qing Dynasty and Uigur Womens Costume

Hello all,

Being inspired by shadrad's picture of Ling in traditional dress, I wanted to draw Ran Fan and Mei Chan in robes as well. So far, I am having no luck finding Qing dynasty costumes. I can find Han, no problem, but finding something other then the a-typical chinese dress is proving very difficult. I was wondering if someone could help me with finding imperial dress for women that isn't the Dowager's outfit. Pictures are prefered, but verbal description helps a bit. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Wearer of the viking hat,

Gabby the Great
