Well, my first thought would be to have it made by someone like DressilyMe or Jeff Liu. I bet it would still be really affordable. It’s a Juniors dress, so I doubt the manufacturer makes larger than a 13.

Maybe try calling the manufacturer and find out if they offer larger sizes?I noticed that it’s junior sizing though? Usually junior’s are cut a little slimmer than womans sizes…so the girls may take a larger size than normal.

How much bigger did you need it?  You can have side panels put in, and add a corset back…but you want a great seamstress for that and it will probably get too expensive.

How about a China designer, send them pics and see what they come up with?  My cousin did that and got all 5 of her BM’s for less than $200 to her door!

I’ve seen Misses dresses like this before.  I know ideeli had a flash sale with the company “Nightwing”.  They make this dress in straight sizes.

Maybe do a Nordstrom search for black evening gowns.  Sadly, it’s not going to be as cheap.  But it may also look a lot more expensive as well.  Not trying to be rude but juniors clothes often aren’t meant to stand up as well so the a misses and juniors sizing may look a lil off together.
