If we say "cette jupe" instead of "la jupe"

Bonjour. If I were to say "cette jupe coute 30 euros" instead of "la jupe coute 30 euros", would the exclamation then be (for example, a friend reacting to it) "c'est cher" or "elle est chere?"

Whether you say cette jupe or la jupe, you would still respond most often with c'est cher:

Cette jupe coûte 30 euro. -- Oui, c'est cher.
La jupe 
coûte 30 euro. -- Oui, c'est cher.
