I’ve never quite been a fan of buying clothes on etsy.  I will only buy clothes online in general if I know the sizing and fit of the store – like jcrew or loft and if I can return it in store.  I think it’s a good idea but I have no expereience with selling there so really I have no clue.  Good Luck!!

Recently there’s been a bit of a surge in clothing shops for plus sized women in the UK. I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t found anything to suit you yet. I tend to only buy clothes from stores I can return goods to if they’re ill-fitting. I’d say, open an Etsy store and start off with smaller things rather than jumping straight into clothing. Maybe learn to knit and sell baby booties and scarves and things? Or baby clothing. Sorry! I know it’s probably not what you want to hear right now.

I’ve never bought clothes from Etsy either, but a lot of Bees bought their dresses there. However, with no experience, I’ve tried making a smiple convertible dress. It was hard, but I finally figured it out. I don’t know if I can do anything fancier yet, but I’m slowly learning.

Whatever you do, good luck. It sucks trying to get money to go for a Grad Degree. It’s why I’m at a job I hate because savings = going back to school.

I have a knitting shop on etsy! I sell finished projects and I also design patterns. Knitting is pretty easy you can pretty much learn just from youtube and it doesnt take too much stuff to start up if you want to just stick with 1 weight of yarn.

As for the clothes do you have sewing experience? Personally I can not sew to save my life and it is pretty expensive to start up. I always look on etsy for clothes but I never end up buying them because the stuff I like i WAY to expensive!
