Besides my homecoming and prom dresses, I don't think I've ever spent this much on fabric for a dress, but I've deemed it ok because lately I've been selling stuff out of my closet that I haven't worn in years. Sewing projects that I wore once or twice, didn't love, and I'm selling them on eBay and Etsy for 10x what I paid for. I've made $230 this month on stuff I would throw out in a heartbeat. Like the dress I made for my maternity pictures? $63. Sold. Where on earth would I wear that again? Honestly.
