Remember the skirt I was working on when the Kids Clothes Week Challenge ended?
Well, I finished it!
So anyway, it's too big. I had fun with the details on this one though. I bound the pockets, applique, ruffle, and hem with that binding I made, and added red stitching in a lot of places for a little extra detail.
I didn't do French seams on this one... just serged them with my itty-bitty super-slow serger.
Oh, and did I mention it has bloomers underneath?
This will be a new adventure for me... I've thought about starting a shop for a while, but just haven't done it before now. I probably won't make a lot of things to sell, since I'm so slow at sewing and would rather spend my time on something I get to see regularly, but it would be nice if I could make a little money that way.
I'm a little nervous about my pricing... I mean, there is no way I'd pay that much for a kids outfit (not even for an adult outfit) but I do need it to be worth my time if I'm selling them. Considering that I spent at least 12 hours on this set, I'm earning less than $5 per hour, not including the cost of materials. Do any of you have tips of pricing handmade garments? Would you pay $58 for a handmade skort and shirt set?
If you are interested in buying this outfit (minus the child, the hair-clip, and the shoes) go here.
I'm very excited and nervous about this new venture, so I'm off to calm my nerves by working on a tutorial for my crossover nursing dress while I sew a new one up for myself. =)
Thanks for stopping by!
