  • How much would it be.........

    My cousin's wife wants me to help her get her son's outfit together. He is 13 and is a good dancer. The only outfit he has is his uncle's which is like 30 years old. How much can I expect it to be for someone to make bustles for him??? Plus, I know of one person I am gonna check with in Maryland does anyone have any suggestions of someone else to check with??? I don't mean to sound cheap but she doesn't have lots and lots of money. I just wanted to be able to get a general idea. Thanks!!!

    P.S. I am gonna post this in the Trading Post forcum also!

    I don't know how much a set would cost already made. Materials for a nice set of adult bustles is going to run in the $300 range give or take a little. However, the materials cost varies depending on how full they are and how many rows of hackles, tip decorations, etc. $300 would make a very nice set of bustles. (spikes, hackles, tip decorations, glue, dowel rods, yarn, material for bases, etc)

    Size is another factor. I don't know how big he is, but some 13 year olds are pretty big, almost adult size.

    I hope you get some information on the cost of the finished set. Wish I could help. Good luck.
    If you are what you eat.... I'm fast, cheap and easy.

        How do I know how much to buy?
        by Doll
        I'm wanting to make some solid beaded leggings, I've never done a project nearly that big before - biggest I've done is probably my moccasin tops. I'm ambitious and a little bit stupid and crazy though and I think I can do it ;)

        The question is, how do I know even roughly how many beads...

        Farbic/Ribbon Applique -How to?
        by wyat
        I need some directions on how to do fabric and/or ribbon applique for a new outfit. I have been told to use the same material that womens fancy dance dresses are made of.

        I have also read somthing in the archives about Wonder Under and interfacing but still don't have a clue.
