With so many choices in attire, it can be a nightmare trying to figure out your signature style. As we grow, our tastes change and our wardrobe needs to reflect our growth. How do you look youthful and still dress your age? What do you wear when your waist isn’t quite as slim as you’d like or your calves are a bit heavier than they used to be? We all have those aspects of our body that we’d rather hide, but it’s even harder to look chic and fashionable when the selection in your closet starts to look drab and uninspiring.

Don’t get stuck in a rut. Embrace your bold, beautiful figure and explore what we have to offer. The clothes you wear should project your best to the world. The right plus size dress compliments your figure, and goes beyond a flashy style or chic print. Here are some fashion tips that will help you show of the best of your bodacious body to the world and give you the confidence you need to inspire others – with envy!


Flabby, long, short, toned – it doesn’t matter ladies! There’s a sleeve solution here for you. Show off those arms in a plus size dress! Fluttered short sleeves can add breadth to narrow shoulders and hide unseemly flab. They’ll draw attention away from your arms to your shoulders and drape your bust line. Short sleeves are great for toned arms and/or for keeping cool. Three-quarter length sleeves should fit close without pulling in the back whenever you move your arm. There should be enough slack you to give you ease of movement. Lace sleeves can add some sizzle to your dress. Flowing bell sleeves can add length to your arms, and come in three-quarter or full length variations. Both are great options!


The right neckline will draw the gaze to your bust area in a vertical direction, giving your neck an elongated appearance. V-neck lines are ideal for lengthening the neck line too, providing an illusion of depth. The bow neck line is very common for dresses and tunics of all styles but it should drape the collar bone closely. Avoid necklines that bunch or clinch at the bosom by wearing a secure bra to hold in troublesome cleavage. And get the right size dress! At Perfectly Priscilla we have lots of plus size dress sizes. The right dress size is most important for making sure the dress isn’t too tight or too baggy. If you have questions about sizing, give us a call at 229-469-9627 or send an email to customerservice@perfectlypriscilla.com!


Details on the hemline of your cute plus size dress can be subtle but they are the icing on the cake when you’ve got the right ensemble! An asymmetrical hemline typically is shorter in the front with a tapered, longer back. It leaves room for your lower legs and feet to show, especially if you’re wearing heels or sandals with a unique look. Lace hemming, crotchet-style trim, or a dress extension can add a touch of glamor and sex appeal to your outfit.

Dress Length

Not sure whether to go long or short? Generally, longer plus size dresses are for formal gatherings, while shorter style dresses are ideal for casual, semi-formal gatherings. But why limit yourself to the convention? Tunic dresses can be worn in combination with jeans or leggings. Knee-high dresses can help show off athletic legs or make stubby legs appear slimmer when worn with pumps, sandals, or ankle-strap shoes. Ankle–length, plus size dresses in light fabrics like rayon or polyester can give your gestures a flowing, graceful appearance. Dress clothes for plus size women are fun! Play around with different dress lengths and styles to find new options for yourself!


If you want to extend your shoulder line horizontally, try an off-the-shoulder dress. It’s a classic Southern belle look that provides a tasteful, elegant frame for your bust line and makes you appear more symmetrical in shape. A narrow belt above the hips will make your figure appear tapered as the eye moves from the shoulders inward. Each shoulder should sit comfortably and symmetrically on either side, without sloping, otherwise the clean neck lines of the dress simply get lost. Perfectly Priscilla’s off-the-shoulder dresses are a part of our cute plus size dresses.

These are just a few tips to help you narrow in on your own signature style. Choosing plus dresses that are classic in style will give your wardrobe longevity and allow you to mix and match with ease. Bold prints and patterns should attract attention but if they are too busy you might actually be distracting from your real assets. Perfectly Priscilla designs are meant to be timeless pieces for the young and young at heart. Elegant fabrics, tasteful lines and vibrant prints combine to give you an appealing figure that reflects your personality as well.


Cute and trendy plus size dresses are here! Designed exclusively for the voluptuous woman of the twenty-first century, Perfectly Priscilla Boutique offers an exciting range of diverse dresses to suit plus size women from 12/14 to 20/22. Don’t settle any more for what you can find at your typical chain stores. You can have chic, stylish designs that will add excitement to your wardrobe and revitalize your image. Our selection is broad enough to offer something for the athletic female body, round, or bell-shaped figure. Make Perfectly Priscilla Boutique your online destination for fashionable plus sized dresses in the hottest styles!

Floor length and ankle-length maxi dresses in warm, solid earth tones are a great way to give off a slimmer appearance without looking too conservative or ambivalent. This collection showcases semi-formal attire that can be worn in any season with the right ensemble. Our unlined fabrics combine rayon and spandex to give your full length dress a smooth, light texture that flows naturally and drapes your contour elegantly. You can wear these at formal or semi-formal gatherings, along with tasteful accessories like a scarf, shawl, or belt. Choose from either long or short sleeve as well as our high-low cut styles in warm earth tones – brown and rust. Choose one in your size today!


Ok just because the invitation says ‘casual’ doesn’t mean you can’t dress to impress, right? Chic designs and trendy styles aren’t just for the slender.

Tasteful accessories like a belt, jewelry or ankle-strap shoes add the finishing touch!

Full length dresses in neutral tones like olive or beige are ideal for cooler climates. Knee-high dresses that cut off above the knees can give you the appearance of an hour-glass figure with the simple addition of a belt or sash. Plus size tunics in cute prints are also available, which can also be worn with close-fitting jeans. You might prefer a wrap-around dress with a sheer dress extension worn underneath to give your ensemble a sexy frill-finish. If you’re worried that your legs look stubby try knee-high boots. They draw the eye upward and give your legs an elongated look. As you see, Perfectly Priscilla offers many dress styles for plus size women. Choose from our selection now!


Got a night out on the town coming up or an after-work cocktail party scheduled? Check out our vibrant selection of trendy casual plus size sundresses. Sleeveless, long sleeve or short sleeve styles are available. Our selection offers flowing knee-high or full-length styles. Floral prints are great for fall and spring, while the solid, more conservative tones (navy blue, brown, gray) are ideal for the colder months and very slimming. Consider a dress with asymmetrical or lace hemming to give your ensemble a subtle touch of glamor. Polyester, spandex and rayon fabrics are utilized to make each style unique so be sure to read the detailed description for each dress before making your final selection. Start shopping now!


Can you ever go wrong with a classic tunic in your wardrobe? It’s a style as old as the toga but it never gets old because you can wear a tunic with just about anything in your closet – jeans, stockings, leggings or a gauzy dress extension. Our plus size tunics come in denim, polyester, rayon or blended poly-spandex to give your clothing more stretch without clinging in unflattering places. Bow neck lines are a timeless feature but a tear-drop neckline projects a youthful, chic look. Off the shoulder short sleeves are great in summer. Bell sleeves in three quarter or long add some flair to your tunic, and we’ve got both!


On your way to becoming the next Oprah? Well, before you finalize your plans for world domination you’ll need an outfit that says CEO salary even if you aren’t quite there yet! Sassy or conservative, our knee-high plus size dresses and plus size tunics come in polyester or rayon with a blend of spandex to give you a chic, youthful look that breathes and flows with your contour. Floral prints and paisley patterns, touched off with elegant detailing show the world you’re someone with discernment and flair. Choose from neutral tones or more vibrant spring colors. Our selection of classic styles in plus sizes mean you’ll have a timeless piece of wardrobe that will grow with you as your tastes evolve. Browse now and find the style right for you!


There’s probably no better excuse to go all out than a wedding! Our plus size sundresses and long dresses combine the right amount of classy and sassy to your signature look! If you need something less formal but still endearing, take a look at our selection of knee-high dresses in lace or chic bold prints. Remember: A V-shaped neckline adds a touch of mystery and sex appeal, drawing the gaze upward from the bust with classic, elegant lines. Off the shoulder short sleeves are great for the warmer seasons, giving you an extended shoulder line and a tapering waist effect.


Ok, so I know more layers is not the ideal when you’re a plus size and it’s hot outside, but a dress extender is the perfect solution to turning a dress that’s too short into sexy-chic! Maybe you already have the perfect little tunic for your girlfriend’s engagement party but it’s a teeny bit shorter than you’d like after a few washings. Now you can keep your favorite dresses for even longer with our dress extenders.

Dress extenders can add just the right amount of length to give your tunic a hemline that captures the eye and the imagination. A little modesty and mystery come together when you wear a lace extension or gauzy slip under your tunic or knee-high dress. Plus size dress extenders are available from our selection at competitive prices. They’re light and sheer so you hardly feel them at all. Finding the right dress length is crucial to giving your ensemble an appropriate hemline that isn’t too wide. Thinner is always better in this case. Check out our selection of extenders now!

Sewing Workshops: Six Schools and Classes Across America – Sew & Fitting Lessons

Check out our sewing lessons in a city close to you by clicking on a location button below:

Hundreds of students from around the world have attended our sewing workshops. Like a sewing vacation, you’ll share camaraderie with other sewers from all walks of life from surgeons to CEOs to fabric store owners, homemakers, dressmakers, attorneys, farmers, and teachers while you are taught expert sewing techniques and the tissue-fitting method of pattern fitting.

You will be guided by the qualified Palmer/Pletsch sewing teaching team. We have been teaching sewing and fitting sewing patterns for over 35 years, focusing on quality garments sewn with limited time. We have worked with and influenced major pattern companies, bringing our message to you along with our fashion sewing books and Learn How to Sew DVDs. We want to PERSONALLY share our sewing knowledge with you in these workshops. AND, we learn from you as well, hopefully making us better teachers.

Palmer/Pletsch Portland Sewing School


Sewing School LocationThe Palmer/Pletsch Portland Sewing School workshops are held in a spacious classroom in the Fabric Depot, a wonderful fabric store in southeast Portland, close to hotels and the airport. They have a huge selection of fashion, quilting, and home decorating fabrics. For "shopping convenience" you may run a tab, which means no waiting in lines for purchases, and they will ship your purchases home. Some workshop attendees even ship their laundry and pack their fabrics!

Fabric Depot StoreFabric Depot
700 Southeast 122nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97233
(503) 252-9530


The hotel provides transportation to and from the workshop each day. In the classroom we offer coffee, water, and snacks, and, at midday, a wonderful lunch (see the rave reviews at right!). We have some machines to loan if you cannot bring your own. Notebooks and most sample-making supplies are included in Beginning Fashion Sewing Teacher Training Workshop.

A bring list of what you need to bring, along with other information is available as a pdf, just click on the bring list link above. If you have the Palmer/Pletsch book that is being used as a reference for the class, bring it. We have found that most people have the books, so we are no longer including them. (It is a way to keep our prices the same as they have been.) We recommend the spiral versions. Fabric Depot does carry them

We'll have a celebratory lunch on the last day of each workshop - a time to share information and receive your graduation certificates. Then back to work on your projects until 5:00pm

Workshop Attendees LOVE the food!
Our caterer, Jody, gets rave reviews for the lunches she provides during our workshops:
"I ate things I would never have tried and I think it's great she is allowed to just cook as she wishes for the classes."
"Excellent. Very sensitive to everyone's needs. Healthy and tasty. Great presentation."
"Yummers! Great ideas and combos."
"Excellent. Very accommodating to the needs of the group and it was delicious."

Teacher Training is available in conjunction the Fit and Pant Fit workshops. The Fit and Pant Fit class descriptions pages have more information available as well as how to sign up!


This is an optional program offered the day following the workshop. We have so many unique fabric stores—more per capita than most cities in the world. The day after the workshop Pati Palmer and Marta Alto will be your guides transporting you to and helping you shop at our best stores. Lunch at one of Portland's culinary experiences is included. We will pick you up at the hotel at 9:15 to take you to fabric stores, lunch, and back to hotel by 6:00. (A minimum of 4 people is needed to offer the shopping trip.)

If it has been years since you’ve had your colors done or if you never have, Ethel Harms is an amazing image consultant who has developed her own color and cosmetic line. This is not a “canned” color palette. Ethel hand builds your palette according to your hair, eyes, and skin colors. If you make an appointment with her the day or evening before the workshop, she will bring you your color palette two days later and show you how to shop with it. Or, book with her any available evening during the workshop.

Ethel will give you the names of the others (up to 4) who have signed up at the same time and you can contact each other and cab to her studio about 15 minutes from the hotel. She will give you the cab information. E-mail Ethel at eharms@msn.com for an appointment or call 503/699-5501. Color Analysis price for Palmer/Pletsch Workshop Students is $175. For more about Ethel Harms, visit www.yourimageconsultant.com.

If you have time to tour our beautiful region before or after the workshop, here are some suggestions you can look up to see what interests you. You can drive the “loop” going up the Gorge on Highway 84 to Hood River, turn up to Mt. Hood, visit Timberline Lodge and drive back to Portland on Highway 26. We are also only 1 1/2 hours from the coast. The MAX line to downtown is just across from the Monarch Hotel. The Spirit of Portland has a wonderful lunch and dinner river cruise that is quite reasonable and showcases why we are called the "city of bridges"!
