I had to make myself a costume to wear for my singing group to sing at Disney for Christmas - and boy was this a challenge I didn't expect! I had to use a previous costume (made for someone my size but much shorter) to make my dress from. I ended up adding a waistband for a better fit and just winging it with the skirt. Thankfully it got there in the end, but I'm still to angry at it to be completely happy, lol. At least it's done in time!
