I know everyone's pricing is different...but
Does your price vary between age and dancing levels...ie if you have a 10 yr old prizewinner, and a 16 yr old O/C....if the amt of embroidery and crystals are similar do you still charge less for the 10 yr old?

Pricing usually starts with size and then goes up with the amount of work. (NT)-Thursday, February 20, 01:49:37pm

so you have a 'base' price from 8-18? What is the difference---base for 18 - base for 8 = ??? (NT)xxThursday, February 20, 03:32:50pm

Think how much quicker and easier it is to make a dress for a 10 yr old, and how much less fabric you use (just compare the skirt panels, for example). I don't think any dressmaker would charge the same for different ages (= different sizes). But you need to work out your own pricing, including factors such as how experienced you are, and how much in demand. If you reach the stage of having a waiting list when you're working full time at these dresses, then it might be time to put up your prices (NT)!Thursday, February 20, 04:14:38pm

For the most part, I would charge the same if the hours involved are the same. I think of it as an hourly wage and not a price based on how old a dancer is or their level. If significantly less fabric is needed then a small reduction for materials, but not a huge difference. (NT)..Thursday, February 20, 07:07:55pm

If the amount of crystals and embroidery are the same, why would you charge less just because of age? Isn't that age discrimination? ;-) But seriously, if the work is the same what would be the reason for a discount? (NT)Just curiousThursday, February 20, 10:59:06pm

I charge two basic prices for teen vs. child because the bust shaping of teen bodices takes me longer and it's harder to applique or embroider a dress with bust shaping (NT)It's the shape not the ageFriday, February 21, 04:31:56pm

Does anyone actually charge the same for a small or a large dress? (NT)?Friday, February 21, 10:02:09pm
