Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you need to figure out how much it would cost to make the dress. you can do this by adding all the costs of materials together. in this case: cost of pattern + (cost of fabric per yard * number of yards) + cost of thread ... etc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's important to note the things you should multiply before adding though. For instance, if I have the price of something per yard and I need many yards, then I should multiply those together to get my total price.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm trying to teach you how to get the answer rather than just giving it to you. You'll never learn that way. Do you follow what I was saying about finding the total cost to make the dress?
