How much does it cost to make a dress?

Hey guys!!!

I’m off to a wedding in November and I want to make my own dress (as a guest only) because i’ve seen lots of guidelines, patterns and designs in magazines and want to have a go at it myself (with help from my mum, who has some dressmaking experience).

About how much does it cost to make a dress from scratch? any good ideas for on-line shops to use for fabric supplies (prep ably without shipping necessary to UK)?

Ideas, suggestions and estimates all welcome!!

First decide on what kind of fabric you want it to be, do not forget the underskirt , You will probably need 5 to 6 metres at lest for the dress.Don’t use online shops Use your local markets or markets in the nearest big town . If you want silk or satin or fabric of that type use an indian dress shop . Markets you would pay about £6 to £8 per meter haggle a bit also when you have decide on the colour do not forget to corordinate your accessories and pick a style that you will be comfortable all day. so about to included underskirt £35 to £45 for a dress . hope this helps
