Patterns tested, and more

Sorry for the long delay in updating you on the project's progress. I got back from my trip to the conference in the Czech Republic and have been swamped with family stuff, end of school stuff and dealing with the effects of jet lag, which seems to have hit harder this time than any other trip I've ever taken.  However, the project has been moving forward! 

Nikki has been busy testing the patterns Caroline made, and they are turning out great!

With the extra project funds, I've been able to purchase a special book scanner which photographs the book, instead of needing to flatten, and potentially damage, the book on a regular scanner. This will allow me to easily scan in the catalogs and other books with images I want to use in the finished book. I've begun to organize all of the materials, images and information for each of the corsets into their own file, which is the first step in the writing process.
