Subject: With all the new style dresses covered in heavy embroidery from neck to hem, have you had to increase your costs to include all the extra time, drawing designs, planning lay out, extra machine time? they are taking forever to make and buyers expect to pay the same as a far simpler design...

I wonder whether the big names charge extra as well?

It is taking a lot more time, and people are not willing to pay more. How I long for 2010, 11, 12, style dresses. They were so much simplier, and people paid the same amount for them. In talking to people who have recently purchased bndms, they are not charging more (and maybe even less)...Wednesday, February 10, 06:56:12pm

The current trend works perfectly for the large scale dressmakers. The equipment to produce this type of dress is extremely expensive, yet it is the only way to make a dress in a timely manner. Any dressmaker would have to fully commit to a high amount of costumes to make it profitable. Very hard for the part=time dressmaker. (NT)Switched to alterations!Thursday, February 11, 07:53:24pm

My solution was to simply work more efficiently and faster, with embroidery for one dress going while I put together another and think about the design for a third. Not that hard to do (NT).Friday, February 12, 06:26:18am
