Thrifting is a great place to start looking for fair choices, as always. eBay and Thredup are great online supplements to local options. Sewing is a great option too. Fit can be completely customized and fabric and style options are plentiful. This Seamwork podcast is inspiring whatever the size. Jenny Rushmore chats about the boost in confidence sewing has given her. Jenny has a great blog and offers patterns too. Some other sewing patterns offered in plus sizes include:
100 Acts of Sewing would be great beginner patterns. Sonya Philips's instagram is inspiring too!
Curvysewingcollective is a great resource for lots of pattern options and inspiration.
Colette Patterns offers a large size selection and uses all sizes of models too.
Marilla Walker offers some larger sizes.
Closet Case Files offers patterns up to a size 20.
I love that there are designers offering beautiful choices for everyone! Please do share any additional resources you may have in the comments. We'd love to know about them too!
