yes, I have purchased skirts and dresses for $5 and for sizes larger than me... then modify them to fit me. i'ts been a fun project. i have even bought a maternity dress to modify for my daughter. Have you checked ebay or etsy for dresses? maybe they cost more... also, try a discount fabric store. I was visiting Texas and foind a discoint fabric store that sells for $1/yd to $10/yd. great deals!
