I know someone who was going to make a adult mens complete outfit, everything sans the roach, for about $1,800. A child is much smaller so the amount of materials and work are scaled down a bit.

Just my 2 cents. I myself am not a beadworker or good at sewing, but my line of work puts me in the same situation of how much to charge after materials. I'm basing the above with how I see my gf's family handle orders for outfits and beadwork.
That is a great post regarding all the factors to take into consideration when pricing beadwork, or any other craft.
