After many years as a Wardrobe Assistant for a professional ballet company, I had to retire due to surgery. I now have an opportunity to create dance costumes for a dance school's competition team. The parents of the dancers will each purchase the costumes for their daughters and the school will tack on a charge for each that will be included in the final price the parents pay. As I was salaried by the ballet company (no extra pay for creating costumes), I am at a loss about what to charge per hour. Any and all advise will be helpful.

Hi Mary and welcome to Sew Whats New.
You are a highly prized professional very knowledgeable about your craft. I would think you could charge top $$$ for your work. How does $25.00 sound per hr. What do professionals charge in your area? this is something you will have to find out about.
Let me know what happens.

|I know a lot of professional seamstresses charge from $10-$15 dollars an hour. Maybe even $20.||
