View Full Version : Looking for estimates for a costume commission.

Details - I only need the basics of the jacket and pants, I will do the card details myself. I wouldn't mind whether the pants were non-stretchy with a fly or moderately stretchy and with just a hidden zipper.

Basically I'm just debating whether my time is worth more than the $$ it would cost to get someone else to do the basics for me. Feel free to give an estimate on the work even if you wouldn't consider the commission, because I'm mostly just shopping around at the moment.

Looks like a sweet challenge. I would create a pattern for the jacket and pants.
We can get to the particulars of fabric type at the point of awarding commission. Otherwise I wold be pleased to help you.
Some questions-
do you want the jacket with lining?
any padding (shoulders, etc.)

I can make pants with invisible zipper, so no worries.


I can take payments thru paypal.

The jacket would need to be lined, but no padding is necessary. (Hurray for girlie boys)

The only real change from the source images is that the jacket would need to come 2-3 inches closer to closing in the front (I am a girl, and although I will bind, there's no need to flash the binding.)

We'd do the jacket for about £120 ($240) and the trousers for about £40 ($80) depending on the specific fabric - plus shipping from the UK

All fitted to your measurements obviously.
