So, how much would you expect to see this for on etsy? (assume name-brand fabric, not Joanns or Walmart $3/yd fabric)
(It's basically a white underskirt with an apron-style over skirt that ties on the sides. There are four pockets in the front apron, with button closures. It's kind of hard to see in the pictures!)
Thanks for any input!

But I don't know anything about fabrics, or how much you spent to make it, or anything like that. I didn't even know that there was brand name fabric.
It's a really cute skirt, BTW
Im wondering about this- not to sound like im questioning you but how do you get this kind of information? I just started making stuff on etsy and I would like to hear more? Also- im really not sure this is the case with my circle of friends- i dont ask much money for my stuff but people seem to be happy with very simple design...
it depends how you finish the seams. I sew custom girls skirts on request but have not expanded them to my etsy store b/c I do not own a serger and the standard on etsy is to have serged and topstitched seams. If you are doing french seams or just sewn and finished w/a zig zag, you will not be able to ask as much.

I just did a search to see what you were up against...
Seams absolutely must have a professional finish. Serging is indeed the standard. This is why I do not sell childrens clothing. I do not have a serger.
Pet free and smoke free are important.
price range looks to be in the $15 to $25 range.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
I would say 30-35 fabric is expensive. You can cut costs and make them with recycled sheets for the under layer. Then offer a econo recycled skirt. ETSY shopers love this option.
