|Looking for a good seamstress with a sense of adventure

Today is pretty amazing. I'm in my presentation outfit and doing a full "dress rehearsal". Photos later!
UPDATE: $292 to fix my freezer door flap all because a plastic clip broke which they have now replaced with metal. The WHOLE freezer/fridge only costs about $800, so UGH.
Anyhow, with my little bit of surprise money, I got my freezer fixed, helped a friend in need get needed medication, bought a nice bottle of Port wine for Craig, and with the rest of it I'd like to achieve a dream of a few years now.
I have some fabric and some drawings, but not the talent to put together the items I've drawn.
1. I'd like to draw up the patterns and get some prototype "sleevies" made.
2. I'd like to finally get my sari fabric made into a dress.
3. I have a few beloved skirts I'd like to have taken in so I can wear them again. They aren't really replaceable.
If I were to ship this to your home, would you be willing to work on this project? I'm offering $150 for the job ($50 for the sleevies, as they are a small project and $100 for the dress which is far more work) as an initial suggestion and I'll send all supplies. I need to see samples of your sewing work. In all honesty, I'm hoping matrixx will take on this job as I'd like to collaborate with her. If you sew and I'm way off on what I think is a reasonable/fair price please correct me. I was hoping to pay about $20 per sewing hour.
Other than that, the rest will go for the bills, sadly, but it is amazing to have a tiny amount of extra in these tight times.
