It's so beautiful! I can't believe you made it all yourself! Seriously, it's so pretty that I keep going back to stare at the picture of it @_@

Aww, thank you both ;_; I'm so happy you like it, I'm being overly critical of my own creations again :D

Little Phoenix: well, one roll of thread is about 5€ and a bag of dye is 6€. I can't remember how many rolls went into this one, but it was at least three. So the materials are from 20€ and above (for a dress with one color, something like a top wouldn't require much thread so it would be a bit cheaper, haha), and I'd add maybe something like 30€ for my time spent on top of that... And I'd hope the buyer pays for the postage as well :D
So for example a dress like this one would be 3 rolls of thread + 3 dyes + 30€ + postage... Around 70€... Gee, that's expensive O.o Well, it IS handmade, and I make them well!

If you want to pinch from the price a bit, I could make less bulky doilies, thus using less thread xD Also, using less dye would make them more pastel instead of having strong color, so even halving the price of the dye is an option. Also, there are threads that already have color; I have black crocheting thread, for instance, so maybe dye isn't even needed. That takes away the possibility for a gradient, though. And I don't know how many different colors there are, I should do some research on that!

And when I think about it, dare I ask 30€ for my time? I could ask 20€ first, since the first 3-4 dresses would be pretty much "practice dresses", since I'm not that skilled at crocheting at this point...

So yeah, the price can be pretty varied depending on what you want :D

The shipping kills! Very Happy I've just checked Finland to Serbia (or I think I did xD). If it's under 2kg, postage is 35.00 :O we are on the same continent for gods sake Very Happy well, first I have to collect money. I will let you know when I do! Smile

I checked as well, and got the same result, holy hell :D But that's for a package with a shipment tracking code, so it most probably wouldn't get lost! I wonder if I could send it as a maxi letter, the dress isn't that big when folded tightly... I could ask from the post office what would be the cheapest way. Or the smartest.
