A 0-3 month old girl will pry not wear it for more than pictures and 2-3 times as part of an outfit. Just a thought...Cute tutu tho..I have put mine on paper towel roll to get picture before
Thanks Andrea. I do not want to overcharge but I do not want to undercharge. I was thinking $25.00 might be too much to charge for a little baby tutu but then I have looked on Etsy only to see some people charge $8 and others $50 - $70. I was really confused by that. Thanks so much for the advice. I kind of use the 3x your cost method but I really have an actual equation I use to make sure I am calculating time and cost. I just did not like that number I came up with, it honestly was not enough, in my opinion so I thought I would take it to the board tehehe


Thank you. I also tried to compare prices on Etsy. I must say some of those tutus are very pricy and some are ridiculously underpriced (like sickening) I wouldn't want to charge that much but I also am making them to make a profit. The tutus also include a tulle puff hair clip. They do take some time to make them with cutting the tulle and actually making it so I want to make sure I am being fair in comparision with what others do charge. I have seen a lot of people only doing a double layer but I really like the triple layers or more.

Thanks again ladies. I appreciate you taking the time to give me advice and I would love to hear more.
