This is the last indication that this is still being worked on, on Deji's twitter from November 2021. It's not a lot, but it's something?

I love so much about this game - the art, the characters, the world- and I would love to see it succeed! I would recommend posting on Tumblr and the Lemmsoft Forums, or even Twitter or r/otomegames? I understand that it can be very time-consuming but I think you could get all the publicity you can :)
I played through the demo many times- and I've noticed the movie scene changes regarding max affection- so far I've manged to get these max affection scenes for all the characters (I think) apart from John. I feel like I should be choosing the right answers, unless his are a bit odd? I really can't figure out what I'm doing wrong... I've even answered his text at the game, too, since that's what I though I was missing the first time, but- apparently not? I really want to see the scene, so if you could help pont out where I might be going wrong that would be a huge help ^^
That aside, I love the demo! All the LIs are intriguing and cute in their own ways and the GUI is really cute! My only fault here is that for saving/loading, all the pages look the same since they're labeled 1-2-3 on every page, but it's only a minor thing and doesn't really need replacing. All the art is really good and consistent too! I can't wait to see how this develops.
1. What is your gender and age?
Female and 16.
2. Where did you find out about Tailor Tales?
....I'm not sure? Maybe through Lemmasoft forums, or through scrolling through itch.io? :I
3. Is the art style appealing to you, or did it take some convincing?
I like it!
4. Which (available) character is your favourite?
Dimitri so far.
5. What’s your favourite scene?
Dimitri comforting the MC, but Neil's masquerade ball's mirrors scene is a close second.
6. What’s your favourite CG?
It's a three-way between the derpy photo, Neil being smug in the mall and Dimitri with the cat.
7. Which character would you like to be available next?
Aiden or Sam!
8. How many fierce points and how many kind points did you get at the end of each route?
I don't really remember, but I think it was slightly more kind points than fierce points.
9. How much tailoring experience and gold did you end up having at the end?
5500 gold and 2000 experience (though I did buy quite a bit....)
10. Was it difficult getting gold to purchase the chapters, or was it easy?
Not really! Besides, I had a lot of fun
11. Was it difficult re-creating garments that were important clients?
I.e. the masquerade dress, Angela’s dress, or the opera dress.
I tried going back and making them(since I skipped all that at the beginning) but I technically already had them done so I didn't get the chance to remake them :(
12. Favourite aspect of the game?
I really love the whole designing clothes for clients!
A couple other things-
The game ignored my choices for the CGs as well, despite choosing black hair at the beginning it still showed brown.
Neil's chapters 21+ didn't cost anything for me either, but Dimitri's new chapters cost me like usual.
When designing clothes for clients, sometimes they want the rainbow pattern but coloured, but it doesn't look much different from the base so it can be frustrating to try and get it right.
Also, Dimitri called me Joselina again in one of the chapters, though I can't remember which...
Okay, so I played Legend of the Winged Ones and really liked it so, of course I had to play the demo of your new game!
My favourite LI is Kahlil- and his animations- no spoilers, but they are AMAZING and HE'S ADORABLE.
(P.S. I wasn't expecting the Legally Blonde reference, haha! XD)
I took another look, and I think that just may be a fault on my part - if the mouse wasn't hovered on the word itself, it didn't register, so if the mouse was like, a pixel from the word, it looked like it wasn't working. It's a little finicky, but it works, so that's on my end, sorry!
I really like the concept and I'm SUCH a chemistry nerd (though I am only doing exams myself, heh) . The GUI is cute, the colours are eye-catching and the chemistry puns were so, so bad (I'm a sucker for bad puns, even more so nerdy ones) - I love it. There are a couple things I'd like to mention though:
The in-game menu buttons don't exactly align with where they are, so I had to keep clicking lower, where the actual button was to return to the game after saving.
This is my inner nerd speaking, and a minor detail, but "Which liquid has the highest boiling point?" and giving the answers as HF, HCl, HBr, and HI might not be the best answers, since they're all gases at room temperature at the very least... unless you're talking about when they're dissolved in water. (save for HF, which is only liquid at just below average room temperature.) [Also, the hydrogen halides in general is pretty dodgy to talk about trends in boiling/melting points.]
I think for Marina's eyes, I think they look "creepy" for lack of a better term because we can see the bottom of her irises on her normal face? I'm not exactly sure though.
That's all I have for now. I'll keep an eye on this! :D
Hmm, from the brief summaries and what I know, in order, I think I like Aiden/Sam-James-Caine/Dimitri-Neil? That may change depending on the stories though~
Angela would be so much fun to romance I think! She's so lovely and her humour is great <3 I can't wait to see more of her in Neil's route, haha!
1. Are you enjoying Neil's route, do you still like him/hate him?
I was... wary, at first. Things are certainly getting interesting right now. I can't say I hate him right now, but I don't exactly like him. >.>
2. What are your thoughts on Dimitri's first two chapters? Do you want to read more?
He seems interesting, so yes I'd like to read more.
3. Who's your favourite guy out of Neil and Dimitri? Or perhaps Alex?
Dimitri seems interesting, but we haven't seen much of him yet, so I haven't really formed a huge opinion yet.I know more about Neil, but as I said, I don't exactly like him. His story's interesting, though. Alex is just a straight up a**, so absolutely not him. If he was nicer, then perhaps.
4. What's your favourite CG?
When the mask comes off. The blush is adorable, even if I'm not super into him.
5. What's your favourite chapter or scene?
Ooh, this is a difficult one. I'd say the scene with the mirrors at the masquerade. It was cute~
6. Which part was the most romantic to you?
Oooh, again, difficult.... the most romantic part, I think, was probably the dance at the masquerade. I'm more of a sweet romantic.
7. Out of all of the side characters, is there anyone you would want as a date option?
I'd like to date Sarah, she's so enthusiastic and supportive... but Angela's cute, supportive as well, seems to be in a kinda rough spot with her family, and also rich.
8. Did you at any point get stuck on a loading screen?
9. Were you able to create clothing using the “Design” button?
10. Did you encounter any bugs while designing?
Not that I recall, no.
11. Were you able to dress up your avatar using the “Outfit” button?
12. Was everything easy to use, or were the menus too complicated?
I would have preferred a less complex name-entering system, using the keyboard would be nice. Otherwise, everything else was great!
13. What did you like more, creating clothes, dressing up the avatar, or reading the story?
Why not all 3? :D Okay but I'm a sucker for stories(it's how I found this) but I ALSO have to say that I loved just creating clothes too. Reminded me of all those doll dress-up games I used to play online. Good times.
14. Most importantly, did you enjoy the game? :D
