Subject: Agreed. I've been keeping a timer running the past few weeks and come to the startling realization that I am gravely underestimating the amount of time spent. I recommend giving it a shot (perhaps on a more relaxing off-the-rack!), and see if you are due for a price adjustment. Styles were simpler for a little bit, but stitch count and rhinestone expectations have doubled in the past year (or so it seems). Prices need to keep up.

Honestly? It is... Went from full time dressmaking to part time DM/Part time retail. Now seriously considering ditching the DM and just working in retail full time. It's more social (I actually have workmates!), less stressful, and you can actually go home at night and leave the job behind you. Far less stressed and far happier. But at the same time - having invested so much in dressmaking, it's hard to give it up entirely. (NT):-SThursday, November 21, 01:15:18am
