Ashley Nell Tipton dazzles the “plus” community with her vibrant designs that are created specifically to make the curvy woman of today feel confident, playful and bold.

  1. Yes! I have always wanted to make my own clothes, but its hard enough finding patterns I actually like, let alone that aren’t a hassle! My skills are very rusty though, I guess its time to start practicing!
