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.

At *least* $35-40 for the plain ones, and $40-50 for the Fair Isle styles -- yours are really original and so realistic, you deserve to get paid for your efforts!!

I actually have a proposition for you -- Kira wants her birthday-girl to have a casual style, and she said that she wanted her to have a turtleneck or (preferably) cowl-neck sweater, hip-length, sleeves not too tight at the wrist, in burgundy yarn . . . so I of course thought of you!!

I know you said knitting to specs made you nervous, but a sweater made to fit Etienne would fit an SD13 girl quite well, I think . . . so it wouldn't require changing your pattern. Please let me know ( ashbet@gmail.com ) if you're interested?

Yay, dollies in sweaters!! <3

Hi :)

I would tend to agree with Ashbet here on what might be a fair price for your really incredibly gorgeous sweaters. I love all three of them and already have one of my Hounds demanding I buy him one this fall. *laughs* You know how demanding the Dollshe boys can be.

And I agree about the hotness of the kilts. I have irons in the fire to get some of my bjd bishies a kilt . . . my Galen Kirkpatrick (Yukinojo) would look mighty fine in one since he's Scottish anyway, and of course my Hounds, or Bermann or soon to arrive Saint. The possibilities are endless.

PS - Mind if I friend you and have you friend me back?

If your irons don't pan out (to mix the hell out of my metaphors), I'd suggest getting in touch with angldst -- she's a professional fashion designer and historical costumer, and is branching out into BJD clothes. She'd probably have to use a Hound as the model (since she only has one doll, a Miyu, but she could borrow my Hound), but kilts are reasonably free-size anyway, and could probably fit both boys as long as the length was correct.

I don't know for certain that she can make the kilt (she'd passed on making one for her husband because of the amount of material involved, but the fabric needed for a doll-sized one is much more reasonable), but she's at least a good person to check in with :>

Annnnd . . . back on-topic . . . I can't wait to see fall fashion, dolly-style -- I'm plotting some cozy stuff for my crew, a noted departure from my usual slick-Goth-EGA style. Should be fun!!

Thanks so much for letting me know Andi. I will swing by angldst and see if she has hung her shingle out yet for sewing for bjds . . . heh, in particular the Hound sizing. ;)

Need a couple of kilts actually . . .

Ooyeah, friends are always more than welcome!!! Hiya, and omg, Yukinojo in a kilt . . . *swooning at the idea* . . . that might even make my Kanbei look happier (he's one of the glummer Yukinojos I've seen).

More sweaters to come! They're keeping me sane right now. ;-)
