What are you willing to spend?

So I've been pondering something I figured I'd come to internets for the opinions of the people.

In these penny-pinching economic times, when it comes to fashion what are you willing to spend on clothing? How article of clothing are you willing to splurge on and what's your price limit?

I designed a dress that I wore to a 4th of July cookout and received many complements. I considered making a few and selling them online through etsy. After calculating my costs and labor I'd have to charge over $100 for what is essentially a simple cotton dress? I don't really shop the stores so are people still willing to spend that much for clothing these days?
