I just answered an ad from a woman who is looking for someone to help
her do smocking.  I can either (using her material) do the basic
construction of the garment, smock it and send it back to her, or I can
complete the entire dress.  My question is how much do I charge for
either way I decide to do it?  I've been smocking since the 1980's, but
have never done it for profit, so I have no idea how much to charge.
Any help appreciated!

What do you pay your hairdresser "per hour"?  I have read on
other groups that sewist just starting out can base their hourly
rate on what the going rate is in their locality for salon hair
care.  Do you have a log of your time on other projects, so that
you can provide an estimate?
