I've found a good fabric for an RotJ jumpsuit and want to get my Jumpsuit custom made. Found a good local seamstress and want to find out if the price I'm being quoted is OK.
I provide the fabric and a standard decorators jumpsuit for the basic pattern/shape and size.
For a one off Jumpsuit, she'll charge £100 - £150 ($160 - $240 ish). If I get 5 people interested, the price goes down to £90 - £110 each ($146 - $176 ish). Seems a bit steep to me, but I've never used a seamstress before, so I was wondering if this is a reasonable price. She's fully into all the reference pics and seems keen to do a good job etc and even noticed lots of the details before I pointed them out. I've also heard good things about her and her resume/CV is pretty good (lots of costumes done for circuses/films/theatre etc.).
If the price is good and I can get more of the fabric, I may think about an interest thread (higher the numbers, cheaper the suits), but I need your input first.
