Since one of our specialties is the Hard-To-Fit Child, we are very proud to be the kind of company that says we can do it – because its the gene pool that dictates complicated fits. Sometimes too, we have children that have health issues and for some reason or another, take steroids which can complicate sizing. Other times a child is super slender making her fit difficult for moms to find off-the-rack solutions for their daughter.
Sometimes, these children walk into stores with a clerk who says “oh, we don’t fit these kind of children – let’s look at the ladies dresses for her”. I mean seriously? Please someone tell me where that clerk’s daughter is so I can personally insult their child…. for life.
For PLUS SIZES we will send a Bodice in the mail which is made out of a muslin material. You will try on this pattern/muslin and get back to us with any further fit issues. Be sure to have a digital camera ready when it arrives. After the fit is finalized, we use our copy of the same muslin here and proceed to make your dress. “My staff and I are really good at spotting the problems. Once the digital pictures are sent back to us experience and a little programing magic, produces the changes that need to be made to the pattern. I really scare my kids sometimes when talking on the phone to customers. After they give me the measurements and height, I usually guess their weight within a pound or two. It amazes my kids but reassures the customer that we know what we are doing! I was especially happy when a recent customer said to me ‘ITS LIKE MAGIC IN A BOX’ and that pretty much says it right there.”
Throughout our website you will send plenty of photographs of children of all sizes and shapes. Some, we describe as above, others just need a tiny adjustment like they are thick at the waist, more straight up and down. Children like that we just widen the waist a bit, all at no charge. For Pegeen is the champion of Plus Size flower girl dresses and girls that are hard to fit…. never pointing out the little girl to be the poster child of the hard-to-fit. We hope to be your choice for your flower girl dress and our easy process for plus size children is more or less our mission because these girls need to feel special and not ruin this special event for them.
