Girls Plus Size Jeans

DD is 6 going on 7 in February. It is hard to find her any pants that fit. Usually we get her capris in a size 10!! She needs the the width and the length is ok because they are capris. Well, the weather is getting colder and she can no longer wear her capris. Its time for some pants.
Yesterday, while shopping at Khols, I found her Levi's, adjustable size 8 1/2 plus, Stretch Flare jeans for 19.99. These pants gave her room in the waist but, I just spent 2 hours hemming 3 inches off the bottom.

DD hasnt worn long pants in over 2 years. DH and I think they look great on her. So, where else can I find plus size jeans?

I'm also thinking about investing in a sewing machine. Any budget recommendations? I would onle use it to make alterations on the kids clothes. TIA!!

Have you tried JcPenny or Sears? They both sell girls plus clothing. We are partial to JcPenny though. They have a Bobby Jack clothing line that's really cute. DD has moved on to the junior section now, but I always enjoyed finding stuff for her at JcPenny.

You can try gymboree.com, gap.com and oldnavy.com

They both only have children's plus sizes on-line. I'm not sure about return policies though. I know that gymbo pants run real long.

As for sewing machines, if you're only using it for simple hemming, one under $100 should suffice. Check sears, target or walmart. My target sometimes has them on clearance too.

Lands End

Lands End has plus sized girls clothes. Look in the "overstocks" section and you can get them for a good price. Generally, there are free shipping codes too.

When I had a similiar problem with DD we always had great luck with Sears and Lands End. Penney's and Levis' were always so much longer than DD was tall. Sears brand Canyon River Blues were always DD's favorite.

It's not cheap, but many Deb stores have plus sizes for kids, too -- JC Penney's is always top of my list. I think they go up to 20 1/2 (XXL) on shirts, and maybe even in pants.

Target has plus size girl jeans & they have the pull elastic in the waistband for a better fit. They were pretty inexpensive.
