Dresses for vintage figures?

My sister was invited by her boyfriend to attend Law Ball in August so she needs a pretty, classy dress. Only problem is that buying a formal dress for her is a struggle due to her 'outdated' measurements. She's a 32" bust, 32" full hip and 21-22" waist.
I took her vintage shopping yesterday, but many of the dresses were more suitable for day wear, looked far too vintage or were over the price limit ($120). I had a peep at Modcloth, but the shipping to Australia can get ridiculous, plus there are only a few that she likes and deems appropriate for the occasion, but they're out of the price range.

Could she get something tailored? I will PM you a dressmaker I know who specialises in this kind of thing.
