Who wants to make me some clothes?

How much could or should I expect to pay for the following service (and does this even exist): I walk up to someone and hand them a skirt and some fabric. I say "Please do the following: Rip up the skirt and make it into a pattern. Make one skirt." How much for 3-4-more skirts? What if it was a simple sundress?

I know YANMSeamstress but I don't even have a ballpark estimate. I would just like to know
A: if it's possible and if so where can I get in touch with this person
B:if it would roughly be more expensive or less expensive than buying a new skirt (which might be around $60? Then again, who knows if they'll ever make a decently priced skirt or dress longer than knee length ever again...this may be my only hope?)
I live in Chicago and would prefer to do it in person because I would like to use my existing clothes as patterns although if some online person had stellar recommendations I guess that could work too.
What do you think, fashion mavens of metafilter?
