i'm NOT a Seemstress for Sale! I have fallen into this trap a number of times starting when I was about 12 making a dress for my Grandmother (a REALLY FUSSY Grandmother) that turned into a real nightmare. She picked it apart relentlessly. There have been numerous examples as the years rolled on. The most recent episode happened at my old job. One customer saw my purse that I made out of an old pair of jeans. (see drawing) He bugged me to death about making a CUSTOM thingy for his daughter. But I've gone through this before and making a CUSTOM anything is not worth it because even a person with years of experience (I have 60 years of experience sewing) one can't do CUSTOM jobs without charging a fortune, which they don't want to pay of course (e.g., chinese imports, et cetera). More later .....
