Looking for DiY Plus Size Clothing????

I do a little bit of custom plus size clothing, but there are some definite experts out there!! I'm featuring Platipuses, but be sure to check out the other cool sellers listed below her feature. I know it's hard to find GOOD DiY Plus Sizes, so please check them out, and feel free to share the love!


"Hey hey hey! I am Plats from Platipuses DIY. A lot of people ask me about the name 'platipuses' and it was my AOL name waaay back when I first got the internet in '98, I was about 11 and that’s what I could think of... haha. Platypus' rule! But anyways! I started sewing really young, just sewing on buttons for my mom, and throughout the years I started making gothic dolls and then moved to leg warmers for myself during my weird goth/anime/cyber phase. After high school, I started getting into sewing again, and decided I could maybe make some money with the things I was making, I don't know why I thought that, the stuff I made when I was first starting were really terrible! I kept making things though and got better! I did start off making small sized items, but it kept getting harder and harder to get models over, and then realized “fat girls need amazing clothes too!” and here I am, making Nerdishly punk-rockabilly things for girls with curves. I also make some guy clothes and might start making KIDS clothes soon too!

Right now, I am trying to break away from Ebay because they change their policies way too much, so I am listing a lot on Etsy with the support of the greatest ETSY street team ever: DIYscene Street Team.

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never
found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time
a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!

I do not know if it's just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your site. It appears as though some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.
Many thanks

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice
from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site
or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
Usually it is caused by the fire communicated in the article I looked at.
And after this article "Looking for DiY Plus Size Clothing????".
I was actually excited enough to drop a commenta response ;-) I actually do have some questions
for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of
these remarks appear like written by brain
dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on
additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list all of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Another available treatment option that can be done at home without a prescription is a
topical ointment. There are alternatives
to having a skin tag froze, burned or cut off. There are many
different reasons that could lead to the development of these tags on the skin.

However, it is also because of this negative thinking which is the primary
cause of their weihgt problem. Then the skinny guy finds weight gainers and tries
them, or some other worthless supplement, and never really understands why he is not big
and muscular like the other guys at the gym. How to gain
weight for skinny guys is about attitude, exercise, nutrition, and rest.
