Construction of my dresses

     I have recently been to flea markets where people are selling pillow case dresses and they are considerably cheaper than what I am charging. Before you come to the conclusion my are too expensive please take a look at the construction of my dresses. I use a binding around the arm holes, the ones I see at flea markets are just rolled back and hemmed. The binding gives a cleaner more finished look. Also my bottoms are done in true pillow case style. The seems are inside and the hem does not show. Also my seems on the inside are French seems. They are encased and there are no exposed seems inside. The ties on all my dresses, although I have considered using ribbon, are all coordinating fabric. I prefer this. I think they have a more finished polished look. I can get any fabric out there anyone else can. I can custom make your dress how you want it. I will not charge extra for personalization. The only thing I charge extra for is ruffles (because it takes more material) and larger sizes (because they use more material).
     If you look at the dresses at the flea markets and compare to mine, mine are much better made. I truly appreciate all of my customers, but I have entered into this to make money and supply a quality product I would put on my kids and not mass produce a product to make a buck off of.
