Price for Baptism gown?
I posted that I am making a Baptism gown out of a wedding gown for the daughter of someone from my church. The gown was quite a challeng because of the hem. It took me 2 1/2 hours just to lay the pattern pieces out and another 2 hours just to cut the pieces. I knew I couldn't make a mistake with it.
I am finished (except for the buttons) and my total time was 8 1/2 hours. Plus, I'm making a bonnet and slip, which I'm just starting.
My biggest problem is price. A seamstress told me to start at $200 and go up from there. I also figured approximately 10 hours total and if I charge $20 per hour, that's also $200. I just feel terrible charging that much for the gown. Maybe I'm a cheap person but I would never pay that much.
Could someone offer an opinion on price here???
