Production line

As I have 3 dresses to make I've started a production line, all 3 dresses are cut out, all 3 capes are cut out & I've started sewing. All french seams as the fabric frays like buggery.

What fun! A million years ago my happiest job was sewing in a theatrical costumes shop....
I was just checking the prices of these dresses on line...oh my word... $$££!!!!
Please let us know what the frugal but loving versions cost.

Jill, I paid £25 for the fabric, I will get at least 4, maybe 5 dresses from this. There will be lots of the cape fabric left so it's worked out at around £6 per dress.

Sue... I just realized that I may have appeared rude by asking....didn't mean to be.
As a sewer and pensioner I just could couldn't believe what I saw when I went to check out the dresses. As there are no small ones in my sphere anymore so I lag behind in knowing what the latest things are...the last little ones costumes I made were all mermaids and nija turtles stuffed with old tights!
Despite the ravely fabric I hope this is enjoyable for you.I especially seeing them twirl about I their new dresses!
