Okay, this is not quite a physical object swap, but I'm going to put it here anyway.
I want to make a gown that includes embroidery on the bodice, but I am a lousy hand embroiderer. I am not sure quite how this would work, since I have never commissioned embroidery before. I basically want a design of cogs (like this but probably on the small side of her examples: http://www.brassgoggles.co.uk/brassgoggles/?page_id=313) embroidered down the front closure (both sides) and around the hem of a bodice (a long natural form basque). I may also want a ~3 yard strip of embroidery to put on the skirt if that's feasible.
I do not have the bodice ready for the embroidery yet (it would probably be at least 6 to 8 months before I will). At this point I mostly want to know if anyone would be willing to do this, approximately what they feel would be a fair price (depending on time constraints, of course), and about how long they think it would take.
Please feel free to message me privately or reply to this thread if you have thoughts or suggestions.
