Wow that's excessive! I had 36 emails from a potential buyer before she discovered one measurement was way too small. Had the dress packed and ready to ship. (NT)Crazy worldMonday, June 01, 09:25:34pm

I had over 80 Facebook messages from one person in one day about her dress. Stopped counting when I got to 80. Other messages on other days too. (NT)Does that count?!Monday, June 01, 09:42:16pm

have a client right now that I'm on email 120. It's been on of the most unpleasant experiences in over 10 years. But I'm finding the clients in the past 3-4 years have been excessively demanding. Something's changed. dressmakers don't seem to be respected as they were in the past as experts. Something else that's new to me is the withholding of payment until they see a picture of the dress.

Anywhere between 50 & 100 for new clients. Repeat dancers usually send FAR less email, and I will give them priority when booking. (NT)--Tuesday, June 02, 09:31:45am

How many emails?Getting cranky.Tuesday, June 02, 10:36:34am

I recently had a customer change her mind 4 times on colors, fabrics, design. I spent lots of $$ on fabrics that would have been beautiful. I finally backed off and let her pick everything because she didn't trust my suggestions. The dress is very nice, but her fabrics selection was not great, and I'm stuck with some very expensive fabrics that they were not charged for.

or how about when you go thru 50 sketches and they still aren't happy? And they resort to insulting your work (not even constructive criticism). If I can tell a customer is going to be a HUGE pain and not happy with my work I fire them. Sounds horrible, but not worth my time stressing when I know they will never be happy with the result.
