As a beginner my daughter has been wearing the skirt and blouse thing, but she will have to get a school costume soon. It is made of gabardine with just some celtic knotwork on the front and around the bottom. And it is lined in satin. I have been told that the price of $400.00 is typical. Is that true. That seems so high to me for one dress.

- Ours is $400, sounds very similar.

- Our school dresses (gabardine) are $275, but that's considered cheap.

- Something else to consider is how much embroidery there is in the dress. I tried to work with a school who just had "embroidery" I have a commercial machine, and the embroidery alone took 12 hours to run. Most commercial embroideries charge by the stitch count. The stitches on this particular dress were in the 800,000 range, and the dress cost only 400. Many people do not realize the time that is spent on even a little embroidery, and that is where the cost comes into play. This particular school dress took longer to run than a solo dress for half the cost.

- Ours are gabardine, $375, but very heavily embroidered.

- You should ask your daughter's teacher if there are any used dresses for sale. My school has a gabardine dress w/ embroidery for around $350. I got a used dress for $150. The prices of used dresses will vary depending on who's selling it.
