Cost Behind Big Ideas

Hello everyone. As I sit down to write yet another post about what i'm learning in school, I got inspired. We recently had to design and sew a blouse on our own. Now, I am not well your typical woman who grew up sewing on the daily. But my mom and her side of the family luckily are wonderful sewers and had the wonderful help and guidance from my mom. We sat down and i Showed her my design for such a basic blouse and she said " Oh this is very doable" So we sat down and I got to work. Granted this was my first blouse to ever sew and I think I did a pretty good job for being my first time. So as I started to finish the rest of my assignment we had to figure out the production cost for this blouse. So I got to doing the math of it all and realized my blouse would only be worth $20. Now to some of you that may seem really low but for me and my first time making something from scratch that was huge for me! I asked some of my friends and family and asked them if they would purchase something like this from me how much would you pay? and they all said roughly around $15- $20. So I was headed on the right track. Now I don't think I have a future being a designer but it was a lot of fun doing it for this class and I learned quite a bit  about fashion production, and why something's are more expensive than others. Made me realize I truly do treasure certain pieces of clothing in my wardrobe much more.
