  • what it cost???

    ive been making jingle dresses for a couple of years now and a couple of people i know want me to make dresses for them...i dunno how much to charge...my dresses have a lot of sewing n applicae but they also have a lot a cones...i know that making a jingle dress is hard work...i just want to know what a good price would be...i dont want to rip anyone off by charging too much...but i also dont want to get ripped off....

    hmmmm thats a good question...it all depends on how much work is being put into each jingle dress and price of jingles...this is how i would think one would go about it...make a list of all items needed and go to the cheapest place to get this...price them and then add work into the cost and shipping and then ya should have yar answer...if they want beadwork in the regailia i would charge extra...and make sure before ya shake hands on the deal to let them know how long approx. that it might take to get done...be sure to charge less for elderly and children...elderly because they are on fixed income and they maybe on their own with bills and stuff like that...for a woman jingle dress i would charge anywhere from 300 to 400 but not over 400...if they want to applique done then charge like 25 bucks less...a childs dress i would chrge about 175 to 200-becca

            "Throw me a friggin bone!" Are you trying to give me a heart attack? Was the dress brand new or kinda aged?
