At it again- sewing a Solo Dress

It's time to tackle another H U G E sewing project and make another Irish Solo competition dress.
Teagan has designed her new desired dress, and I think it's a reasonable undertaking for me. I want to document the cost, so I can decide if making dresses to sell is worth my supply and time investment.

Materials cost
Vilene skirt under frame: left over yardage from Piper's dress. Using a size 11 pattern
rigilene boning- left over from Piper's dress
Inexpensive organza in 3 colors from ebay for underskirt (3 yards total- will have extra): $10.05
Crystal Satin for dress ordered from WhiteLodge Fabric in the UK. 2 yards Candy and 3 yards flourescent lipstiick- $63
Embroidery designs for bodice purchased from KnottyRose Designs on etsy- $6
Cotton fabric for dress lining-
2 yards Kona 100% cotton $11
tulle- 3 colors 1 yard each $4
polyester solid to cover vilene skirt frame $4.50
