My wife was not given a price upfront for silk curtains being hemmed. She then asked for a total cost when one curtain was completed (halfway point).
After the job was done, she charged $80 & claimed she spent 8 hours on them.
She did not appear confident when my wife asked about her specific rate. Instead the lady claimed used a charge-out rate that stores charge even though she works out of an apartment. She had no knowledge of hourly estimates by another establishment.
Stitching was uniform.
We got taken a bit on price by a 75-year-old lady. Next time my wife knows to quote a job ahead of time.
