I can't find any trousers - help!

I'm fat and I have short legs.

Size 22 and 5' 1"

I think I need a petite length but I'm definitely not petite sized - well, maybe I am length wise but not width wise.

I can't shop at Evans because I'm too short even for their short length stuff.

I'm smaller at the shoulders too so tops always look to big there - if they fit my shoulders they don't fit my hips.

Any suggestions?

Buy what you like, keep the receipt, take it to a seamstress/alteration shop and ask if they can take it in. If they can't or they can but due to the cut it will be too pricey take it back and get a refund.

I do this because I'm a size smaller on top than my bottom half.
