  • Take her to a shop that specializes in formal wear. Then they can size it (hopefully in time!)

  • I would suggest buying the smallest size formal wear that you can find in a style that she likes, be it at a department store or a formalwear store, and have it altered. Almost anything can be altered to fit to some degree. I am assuming that she wears a size 0 or 00 or something in that range and everything is too long for her. Have it altered. The straps can be taken up, the length can be made shorter, the bust and waist can all be adjusted. It may cost a bit, but honestly its something that she is probably going to have to deal with for a very long time if she is already a teen and that petite.
