DR has never been about grinding items; it's not a MMO.
The new tailoring require between 2 (black/white + color) and 3 (black/white + 2 colors) materials.
That's two to three different monsters that have to be killed, which takes between 30-60 minutes solo.
Now factor in that each monster has the 40% drop rate and you might end up having to kill the same monster 1-3 more times.
Sooo....all in all, it takes something like 2 hours to create an item slightly superior than stock gear.
Excluding the fact that tailoring costs a lot of gold, that's probably the reason few bother with it.
I think soul gems sort of have the same issue and will create another thread about them
