Okay I get asked this question so many times a day, LOL so I am answering and asking at the same time for you guys. I normally do not sew for others BUT on rare occasions I will take on some projects for fun but it cuts into my own personal sewing time, lol
The OTHER reason I don't normally sew for others is because most people don't realize that having something made just for you costs more then buying at a store. Its sometimes cheaper for me because I am not paying for my own time ;-) so the only cost to me is the material.
So here is my question to you...
Would you pay more to have something that not everyone can readily purchase even if it costs more?
Pro: You have a piece made that not everyone with in a 30 miles radius of F21 has
Con (to some): You will pay for it..lol
I was asked today by several followers about making them the black maxi I wore today and so my answer/question is, would you pay $185 for that skirt because that is how much I would charge to go buy the fabric & sew it? then you have to pay for shipping.
What say you?
