Beautiful! Question, though- do you think the price point is too high for buyers to be interested? I know how much fabric costs and how much work went into the making of the dress so I think the price is more than fair but in my own thinkings of starting a sewing biz. I'm wondering if people will pay the price when they can get made in Asia things so cheaply. How do you market it?
Cyndi--I thought about the price for a few days. The shipping is included so the price for the dress is really about $50. I looked on eBay for "boutique applique dress" and most that were similar were in the same price range, but didn't include shipping. Some were going as high as $125-150! My feeling is that if I sell it, great. If I don't that's ok too because Katie can wear it! I also have a few festivals that are late summer/fall where it might be more appealing because of the season. I have friends with children (and those children have grandparents) who wouldn't think anything of dropping $100 for a dress--especially if it's one-of-a-kind. We'll see what happens...But like I said, I'm ok with it if it sells or if it doesn't. By the way, I'm working on a similar dress now that's Elmo!Blessings--Dana
Tooo cute! I can't wait for granddaughters!
Now THAT is darling! I think the price seems in line with what I see at local boutiques, though it would definitely sell faster (here) if it had a matching hair bow as part of the package.My thought would be to market to grandmothers--moms like me may not have enough disposable income, but trunk shows at elementary school fairs, church festivals, etc would give a good customer base of 50-ish grandmas with money to burn.At least, around here!
