They just don't sell very creative dresses for the plus sized girl. They all look the same.
My daughter loves to be different so I usually make her formals.
She loves everything japanese, manga, anime. She found a costume pattern she loved and we made it into a prom dress! She had already worn a kimono to one school function so we had to think of something new.
Thanks to my sister she helped to buy the fabric!
Turned out great me thinks!

That's fantastic!  It looks very stylish, yet comfortable at the same time, and it looks great on her!

Which costume pattern did you use?

It looks adorable! And great use of the fabric and colour combo. Plus, the headband makes her look like a Disney princess.

I used Simplicity 2837 from the Khaliah Ali collection.
For a Simplicity I only had to make a few alterations to the pattern. I was impressed. The sizing on it was small though. I made the 24w and she is an 18 mostly.


Thanks everyone! She has a great funny personality also Smiley
She had lots of fun.
We are already thinking of next years dresses!!

That dress is sweet and your daughter looks so beautiful! From one plus size girl to another, kudos to her for not settling for the mere afterthought most retail stores give to us bigger ladies.  We're still beautiful, darnit, and we deserve beautiful dressies to match.  Grin

Beautiful dress on a beautiful daughter. It bugs me how we plus size ladies are all expected to look the same. They just don't seem to vary our styles at all. Way to go both of you for making something so beautiful.
