- http://artbeautyandwell-orderedchaos.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/van-dyke-trim-pinking.html shows Gail's learning journey making points for her gown she wore at Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, NY.
- http://janeaustensworld.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/van-dyke-points-or-saw-tooth-trim-in-regency-clothes/ discusses the background of these trims and shows some examples of it used in period fashion.
