What should I charge?
I never know what to charge for my work. I am finishing a dress for a lady who is an elementary teacher. She wanted a cool, comfortable dress because it is usually still hot when school starts. It is a princess-line, cotton dress. She tried it on and was pleased and asked me to make another one. She bought the fabric and pattern. What would you charge?
I do hems, mending, zipper replacement type things for quite a few people and probably do not charge enough. I know I charge less than the dry cleaners.
Any ideas? Do you charge by the hour or the whole project?
