I understand and I didn't want to pay them less than what they wanted. They asked me to name a price and I told them I would pay how much they need in order to make it, I just didn't understand why every time I asked for something different the price would go up, even when what I was asking for was less materials and labor. Besides, the listing said free shipping and the price was less than half of what they ended up asking for. I'm glad that they were okay with discussing the price with me though. It made me feel like the price was real, not just simply because they wanted more money. They showed me the materials they would be using and several samples of similar dresses. They're all very beautiful. I wouldn't want anyone else making my dress at this point.
