Need input re: sweater pricing
Sasha Blaze

Hailp, pleeeeeeeeeeease? I truly have no idea what would be reasonable pricing for the BJD sweaters I keep cranking out (yes, yes, pictures to come, but not quite yet). Honestly, if a new website appeared, selling one- or at most two-off handknitted BJD sweaters like these, at what price point(s) would you think hmmmmm, yeah, that's fair, I'm going to spring for one?

Even as I ask, though, I think it might actually be easier just to slap the pictures up and say, "Tell me which one you want and what you want to pay for it, and it's yours." Still--I'm wasting a little time this afternoon, so I thought I'd ask and see what ideas people might have.



1. Mohair-textured synthetic yarn. Back snap closure. Fitted on Yukinojo, but would work for SD13 boys too (sleeves too short for Dollshe).



2. Acrylic body yarn with wool and alpaca accent yarns. Back snap closure. Fitted on Dollshe bodies.




3. Wool/mohair/nylon blend yarn. Pullover style--no closure. The one I just finished is the same as this, only Yukinojo-sized.

Ebay might be a good barometer ... I cannot knit, so I cant really help.
I don't think that anyone really gets back what it costs to make stuff for the dolls. So much time, experimentation and of course dolly love go into each item they really are priceless.

Oh, isn't that the truth! Even the *most* wildly pricey outfits on Y!J can't possibly recoup the sewer's time and costs--because there has to be a huge amount of trial and error behind that multi-piece deconstructed kimono set from black_cat, or whoever.

One of the minor sadnesses of my BJD life was being unable to hang in there on the bidding for a black_cat outfit, a couple of years ago. I saved the pictures, and I mourn over them periodically . . .
