Could you make me one of those?
How much would you charge to make me a (dress, top or pants)?
I need dress for a (graduation, wedding, or some other special occasion) I'm attending next week
How long would it take you to whip one up for me?
ME: Standing, mouth open, speechless!
Oh yeah and here's a new twist:
I can sew, but my machine is broken. Can't afford a new machine right now, thought maybe you'd make me a dress.
MY THOUGHTS: Hmmmm, maybe it would be cheaper for you to go ahead and buy a machine darling.
RECENT TEXT MESSAGE WITH ATTACHED PICTURE: Love this shirt! Can you make it happen for me?
ME: Oops, accidentally deleted that one.
Oh my goodness, I might sew for the public one day but between pulling 8.25 hours five days a week, and the little bit of sewing I manage to get done for myself, there;s just no time left. Not right now, maybe later.
What types of sewing requests do you get???
