Update, questions, and a looming deadline

The project reached 50% over the weekend, and then it's been stuck, with only one or two new backers each day for the last 4 days. The projected trend does not look good, and at this point, it is projected by Kicktraq to not reach the $12,000 goal.  I've posted it in a few large corset making groups, but am looking for people to please post it in their theater, cosplay and historical sewing groups as well, those are areas that I don't really have access to, so spread the project link around!

Nine more days to go!

I have also had a few questions from people about some of the specifics of the corset patterns, and so I've updated the project story page with details such as: number of panels, dates, waist and hip sizes, and pictures where the book has them. Most of the patterns do not have sizes listed, but the ones that do, I've listed that information.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the research material I was working with this week in preparation for the book.
