That's is way undercut, It's kinda like taking advantage because I'm sure they think you're young, never sold anything like this, etc.... At least take how much you worked on it (materials also) and value that at a good rate ($$ per hour) and that should be your minimum. But they want both dresses that's very cool!

Oh Man! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything on here. I really haven't done any crafting since Nov. 2010 because life kinda started rolling downhill for me for a bit. First I got sick, went to the ER, missed Thanksgiving, found out it was just too much acid in my system causing all my pain. But I have tons of digestive issues and took months to work through had to be on a bland diet for two months! Uck. Then in March I fell and separated my shoulder that took months to heal so finally I'm getting back into some normalcy and crafting Cheesy Yay! (also lately I've been working on redoing my blog/etsy/prints and website)
This project I'm about to share was completed before all this &*%$ hit the fan LOL!

I found this awesome shirt at Goodwill, didn't like the shirt but loved the pattern! I've done something similar to this before (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342528.msg3977471#msg3977471) so when I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!












Since there was only so much material the top turned out a little shorter than I wanted but it's great for layering Smiley
Another little side note, the necklace and pendants I'm wearing were also made by me. Great thing is the chain is actually a chain from an old beat up vintage purse I also found at Goodwill. It's a snake chain and all I did was change the ends to make it into a necklace. I like to wear it doubled up and sometimes I add pendants and sometimes I don't Cheesy

Thanks for looking! Looking forward to getting back into the groove of things soon Cheesy

Aim high, I'm sure they have an understanding that it took you a LONG time to make! I agree with all suggestions so far Smiley
