Some stores ask a higher price to be able to give people discount and still make profit. If someone doesn't ask and pays the full price they make an even higher profit.

So in my opinion it doesn't hurt to ask. Just be polite. You could say : Ooow, that is a higher price than I anticipated. Is there any way we can talk about the price? 

In the current economy they sometimes rather sell, and make a slightly less profit, than no sell at all and no profit.

You can also check prices with other dealers. I once went to a store and said: I really want to buy that coffee machine in this store since I know you and you provide great service. But at the other store they sell the machine for ... .

They didn't sell it for the other price, but gave me a discount that was good enough for me.

ohsaysaysay: It's not a complete circle skirt, but a half circle skirt. So if you have a half circle piece of fabric, you have to sew the 2 sides together to make it a skirt.

I hope this helps.  Smiley

Edit: I can't believe I forgot to say I love the skirt. It looks great.

I completely understand. For me money is tight at the moment, so I will make one myself and spend money on nice fabrics.

If I had the option I would probably buy a dress form.

Thank you for the tips and tricks.

While I know them, sometimes I forget when I'm enthusiastic. Thank you for reminding.

Glad to be of help.  Smiley

I hope I will be able to make mine next week. Since I don't have a sewing machine at this moment I have to use my mother's machine.

Have you considered making one yourself? With ducttape or papertape.

A few days ago I found this video : Pressing tips
It demonstrates how the ham is used and gives some other pressing tips.

In the past I have worn clothes that had that how-made-look to it. That resulted in not wearing them anymore and giving up sewing. I now think pressing with a ham would have made a difference. Unfortunately I wouldn't know where to find a ham, so I searched for instructions to make it myself.

What I found (Make your own ham) doesn't seem very complicated so I will give it a try.

I'm also thinking of making my own dress from out of paper tape or duct tape. But first I have to re-gain trust in my sewing skills.  Roll Eyes
