Those are the best reference shots I could find.

All I'm looking to get made is the jacket and pleated skirt. I'm looking to spend no more than $70 and I would like to have it by mid-August.

No more than $50? In all honesty, this is at least a $100 commission. I know that I, personally, would charge closer to $150 for garments of that nature. Maybe you'll luck out and find someone, but just forewarning you that commissioning isn't cheap.

Really? Granted, I have no experience in making a jacket like that from scratch, but the skirt wouldn't cost more than $30 if I made it (unlined). I can only make the top from modifying an existing jacket, so that's why I'm refraining from picking up this commission...

$150? o.o That would have to be some top notch materials for that kind of price. I can make this myself costume, but I just don't have the time. But I do understand that my asking price might be a *bit* unrealistic and that I am willing to pay more if nessesary. And of course the price doesn't include shipping.

Thank-you for the input though. ^__^

Ehhhh considering some of the materials I wouldv'e probably been able to make it for like 100 total for the skirt and jacket but I have back to back cons all July.

$70 is really low. the jacket probably should be made of a knit and that can be about $10 a yard
I'd say at least $100 since the jacket has stripes on the sleeves and the skirt has two colors in it.
It'll also depend on your measurements, that would inflate the cost if you need more fabric.
If you're interested in paying around $100 I could be willing to take on the comission

If anything - accept Tenshinoitami1's comission! I got an Aeris dress comissioned from her and it was top notch and beautiful!!! I have pics in my gallery of the AC Aeris dress she made!
