My daughter was a very large girl before weight loss surgery. The only way she had dance dresses was for me to buy a pattern and alter, alter, alter it, then alter it some more. One must get inventive and creative when the need arises. I don't think she missed one dance, that was a lot of dresses to make. The last formal dress I made for her was her wedding dress. Now she's easy to sew for and if she feels like it, does it herself.
