well.... my unenthusiastic face says it all 😂 Can't say I'm thrilled with this make, which is my first #2018makenine item! (Check out the link in my bio for my video on my 2018 make nine!) Initially this was going to be the non-peplum version of the @namedclothing #kanervablouse, but that ended up being waaay too short for me, so I added the peplum as an afterthought (which I had to modify because I only bought enough fabric for the non-peplum view.) I like the fabric and the way it looks on the model, but I must be way taller than her because it's much shorter on me, including the sleeves. I think I'll try to wear this one tucked into skirts, which is how I was planning on wearing it anyway. Also, if anyone knows of any cute button back shirt patterns that don't look ridiculous on people who are vertically gifted, please let me know!

I completely forgot to mention in the last post my self drafted duster/longline cardi/kimono whatever you call it!! I made it with a beautiful printed textured stretch lace gifted to me by MARGE clothing. I used a woven bias to finish the edges to prevent stretching out of shape.

I was a bit hesitant about sewing this lace & had a roll of toilet paper at the ready. It's my secret weapon for sewing, long strips of soft paper to sandwich the seams. Sure it's a bit 😕 but it works so well and I always have it on hand! 😂
My new Designer Jade 35 by @husqvarna_viking_australia sewed this tricky fabric like a dream!! I was sew (😉) impressed! It didn't eat the fabric or skip stitches, no toilet paper required!

A couple of days ago I revealed that I was working on these pants for the 3rd time. 
Well here they are, not perfect but wearable!
I have a hard time fitting pants due to a 2.5cm (1 inch) leg length discrepancy which also makes my hips really uneven.
After listening to @lovetosew.podcast today about how sewing can help you love yourself, I couldn't agree more. 
Sewing has helped me learn to work with my flaws rather than fight against them. We all have "our thing" regarding our bodies, no body is perfect. So lets just sew what we love, wear what makes us happy & focus on that rather than the bits we don't like!

I always feel weird sharing something as basic as a solid tee shirt, but it gets worn the most! I had only one yard so I had to get creative and do long cuffs to make long sleeves. 
This is the new version #unionsttee by @heyjunehandmade in wool jersey from @wearethefabricstore.

It took me a while to post a #2018makenine because in reality, I’ll sew way more than 9 things in 2018, so I thought, What’s the point?  It felt a little fake for me!  Why I finally chose these 9 patterns, and my specific plans for them are over on the blog. .

First make of 2018! #v1558 in a wonderfully soft merino wool jersey from #thefabricstore. Was a pretty easy make except for the parts I made hard for myself, like putting in a hand picked zipper and a waist stay, but sometimes I do just like to complicate things. @mccallpatterncompany @wearethefabricstore #sewingtall

My 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣8️⃣ goal is to create more. As in at least 2 garments a month more! That means I have to trust in my schooling. Trust in my skill set. Trust in myself AND then actually share my creations ✂️ Maybe its just me, but I am my biggest obstacle. I procrastinate to death because I believe I'm not that good at this! I'm choosing to leave those silly beliefs in 2017 and move forward with confidence in 2018. Will my seams be the straightest? Probably not! Will my fit be perfect the first time?! Probably not! However I'm choosing to let 2018 be my most creative year yet despite the fear ✂️ Who are your favorite/inspiring creatives?! I want to follow more people who are living out their thing fearlessly! #sewcialists #sewing #sewingtall #sewcialist #diy #patternmaking #pattern #patterndesign

A bit of black to make it a legit #blackwoodcardigan 😂😬 (or maybe I miscalculated how long to cut the front band since I lengthened this beauty 3 inches for #sewingtall as mentioned by @mtgirlsews) I did not lengthen the sleeves and you can see they are just perfect even for long arms 😊 Awesome tips for beginners in this pattern from @helens__closet and the coziest #cloudknit from @blackbirdfabrics #sewzen #kelownasewing #memade #handmadewardrobe #isew

I finally had a nice day to get a picture of the new #jacquicoat from @stylearc I made on my end-of-the-year sewcation.  The fabric is Italian wool cashmere double-cloth from @emmaonesock - it was fantastic to work with, and comfy/cozy to wear. I ended up using a nice silk print from @moodfabrics that was in my stash, instead of the black rayon piece I had purchased (seemed a bit more fun). The ribbing for the cuffs, pocket edges and standup collar are from a recycled cashmere turtleneck sweater I took apart. The Riri two way zipper was ordered from @pacifictrimmings in NY. My second coat from this great pattern - the only change I made this time around was to shorten it by about 4”. After reading @thefoldline “Top Ten Reasons Why Sewing is Good for You” post today, it’s no wonder this make has me feeling so happy! #lovetosew

Gnome gazing// Mashup jumpsuit with the bodice of #v9251, wasitband of #mntania and pants of #v9091 in #spotlightstores cotton// I didn't lengthen the bodice so the top is a little babydoll style for any #sewingtall friends that might make this// The button is from my late Nan's stash ❤// #sewing #handmadethreads
I had forgotten about this black RTW shirt dress (I've had it for 7+ years)...must try to copy because the fit is 👌 Wearing with my Bespoke Blazer, pattern by @sewtogrow 
The sleeves are the same length, I just didn't realise one was folded up 🙈🤦🏻 #thetallmamamade #diy #sew #sewing #seamstress #diy #imakemyownclothes #ilovetosew #sustainablefashion #memadeeveryday #sewistofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #supportsmallbusiness #sewingcommunity #sewingtall #sewtogrowpatterns #sewist #australiasews #realmumstyle #modestfashion #churchstyle #thetallmama #bespokeblazer #agfknits

I blogged about my @iam_patterns #cassiopee dress! I used a lovely lace for this dress from @kniphal and the orange fabric is from @atelierbrunette brunette. I bought it when I was in London, so it contains a lot of memories =D

The raglan sleeves would make it a good pattern for a beginning sewist as well!

⭐NYE cont⭐// This is the other way to tie the bodice of #v9259 which is *slightly* more conservative with the tie providing a lil curtain for my cleve 🙊// This bodice was a serious challenge to fit without gaping and it still needs some work and additional length for my long torso// The length of this is also throwing me off a bit, I'm 5'10 but I kind of look/photograph petite? Not sure about this black magic 🙃🕵️‍♀️ //#sewing #handmadethreads #sewingtall

Here's a before and after video of my coat making and establishing. It feels good to save something so special!

I finished my refashioned coat, and I'm so happy with it! I cut up a wool coat that my grandma doesn't need anymore, and I turned it into this beauty. The fabric is amazing, and I was able to reuse the original pockets, button tabs, and back kick pleat. I used the #pepernootcoat pattern, and it's a good one!

I am pretty much in love with this @heyjunehandmade #unionsttee in merino from @wearethefabricstore Right before I bought this fabric I ran into Jeff Goldblum on the street, so kind of a fun memory to go along with it!  #projectsewit #catmakes18 #merino #isew #sewing #sewist #sewsialist #maker #imadethis #imakemyclothes #indiepatterns #pdfpattern #sewingtall #tntpattern #heyjunehandmade
So this delicious jersey cable knit fabric from @higgsandhiggs went straight in the washing machine when it arrived on Monday and then yesterday it became another @mccallpatterncompany M6886. It's the royal blue colour but in reality is more of a hyacinth/lavender colour (which I love) and is gorgeous, soft and snuggly warm. I didn't have quite enough to make long sleeves so added some cuffs to match in with the neck band. I love this sweater dress and it served me well today whilst sitting in a meeting in the coldest room ever - it's like a warm hug in a dress!! 🔥

Starting off 2018 with more florals! 💐 This was my hurry-and-make-before-it's-time-for-us-to-catch-our-flight Lane Raglan. 😉😂 I got this beautiful french terry from @fabricoutlet/@califabrics at our sewing Meetup the Friday before Christmas, and then immediately threw it in the wash and made it the next day before our flight at 7pm. Best decision ever. All three of my Lane Raglans are getting LOTS of wear and I love it!! 💕 #laneraglan #califabrics

While I was making that amazing dress, I also decided to make the #sunnytop by #fridaypatterncompany prompted by #sewmystyle2018 
After making three button up dress shirts as Christmas gifts, I realized how great batch sewing can be, so I'm trying to do more of it.

This shirt turned out shorter ( #tallgirlproblems ) than I would have liked, so next time I shall lengthen it, but I think it works well with my #blackwoodcardigan by #helenscloset and I'm thinking it could work with high waisted bottoms as well.

Making a muslin can sometimes feel like a waste of time, but often when I don’t I wish I had. 
This is my muslin for the @seamworkmag Georgia dress. While it’s a good fit, dropping the waist seam by 3/4” will fit my long torso perfectly! .

Endlich war schönes Licht für Fotos! Ich wollte schon immer eine Karo-Flanellbluse! Diese 3. #cheyennetunic von @heyjunehandmade ist schon seit Anfang Oktober fertig (Nummer 2 ist noch gar nicht fotografiert...🙈). Sie ist aus einem wunderschönen Flanell von #robertkaufmanfabrics den ich bei @nostalgia_privatim gekauft habe.

So, inspired by everyone's #makenine2018 I thought I'd do some planning today...bearing in mind the gaps in my wardrobe, the contents of my sizeable fabric and pattern stash, together with my needs in 2018, I narrowed my aspirations down to this little lot...oops!!! 😲😲😲 Im hoping it will stop me getting distracted by new patterns! Now I just need to prioritise...🙈
Also, can anyone in the UK recommend a good copyshop please? I'm kind of done with cutting and sticking PDFs!

I'm kind of done with cutting and sticking PDFs! #memadeeveryday  #handmadewardrobe  #sewingtall  #isewmyownclothes  #fabulous50s  #diyfashion  #sewingtall  #makenine2018  #couldntnarrowitdowntonine  #bettergetstarted  @truebias @closetcase.patterns @mccallpatterncompany @stylearc @sewoverit @sewaholic @seamworkmagazine @namedclothing

Q: When is 2.5m of fabric less than 2.3m? A: When you’re 5’10” tall, your linen shrinks in the pre-wash, and you had to grade up the pattern to fit your post-Christmas thighs.. 😫 So these low-key trousers are going to end up as either culottes or shorts! #simplicityk1699 #sewingtall #sewingfail #iblamethemincepies

That same thrifted velour from my Toaster sweaters (yep, 2–one of each view) made the comfiest Hudson pants. I might just live in these going forward!

This means lots of new projects are on the horizon for 2018! I'm back home in the USA, reunited with my baby (industrial machine) and the fabric is affordable (unlike Australia). Really excited to make all the things! Stay tuned...I will also be rebranding in the next few weeks so be on the lookout for that change as well @mrs6footsomething will be me! New year, new changes ✨ #lagarmentdistrict #LA #sewing #sewingtall #diy

I'm really starting to like long cardigans. I sewed up my third #blackwoodcardigan last weekend but this was the first long. I love the pockets and it was a total accident that I pattern matched. For #sewingtall I added three inches to the bottom. 
Fabric from #girlcharlee #isewmyownclothes #diyfashion #indiepatterns #isew #ilovesewing
​An interruption in my normal #coatmakingparty programing to bring you thi​s amazing new fabric from @raspberrycreekfabrics! I'm slightly obsessed and only felt slightly ridiculous walking around Costco this morning in our matchy getup, after we took these photos. 😳

The holidays have me off my game. This is the newest release from @newhorizonsdesigns I am not sure I would have ever considered this my style but I kind of love it.

What a quick sew! #sewhouse7 #toastersweater1 from thrifted velour with length added to the body and sleeves. #sewingtall #saskatoonsews
Stripes for the win! 🖤 Kind of a different interpretation of this pattern but I love it and it is so comfy! 
Pattern 1: cropped version of #mysewcalledsweater by @pipedreampatterns #pipedreampatterns (first pattern by Joann of @ametreof 💙) Pattern 2: #m7547 from @mccallpatterncompany 
Fabric: super lightweight knit fabric bought a long time ago from @girlcharlee and stretch denim from local fabric mart.

Alterations for sweater: lengthened arms and body by 2” and might add another inch to the body next time #sewingtall

Currently my favorite thing to wear. All about leggings and tunics. I always struggle to find things to cover my bum which is a huge motivation to keep sewing. #isew #sewingtall #millennialsewing #memadewardrobe #halifaxhoodie #indiesew

I'm signed up! Thank you Sarah,  @goodbyevalentino - I'm hoping it won't be difficult as I only bought a RTW anorak and a couple of cami vests for my hols at the last minute (I ran out of time) this year and have made everything else throughout the year. Fingers crossed anyway, I'm off to do some planning!

Finished my #seamworkpiedra just in time to party 🍾🥂 Swipe to see construction details and furry sewing assistant.

First time sewing something for myself in stretch velvet 💪😁 Previously had hemmed a friend's dress, and it was slow going until I figured out what worked for the fabric.
For this dress I made straight L based on my measurements, but maybe a M would've been better? I might take the arms and upper torso in a bit, but not tonight. I used instructions from the @seamworkmag Block Paper Scissors in the October issue to make it a turtleneck, and added 7 inches in length. The @colettepatterns instructions on sewing velvet were a huge help, and the hand basting was such a time and frustration savings!
Fabric is a luminous stretch velvet from @stonemountainfabric 
Necklace from a jewelry making workshop at @rarebirdmakersstudio

I reviewed my #2017makenine (mine was #2017maketwelve) and I finished everything but one! (Not everything is photographed though. 😝)
1- a #halifaxhoodie in @joann_stores sweater fleece
2- a #evergreenjacket in @fabricdotcom ikat
Faux suede 
3- a #kellyanorak in @fabricdotcom waterproof fabric and @myfabricdesigns cotton silk lining
4- a #firstcrushswimsuit in swim fabric from @fabricdotcom 
5- modal from @joann_stores that was supposed to be a Cheyenne tunic but became #taniaculottes 
6- a #dressytalk woven tee in sateen from @myfabricdesigns 
7- rayon challis from @fabricdotcom that was supposed to be a Cheyenne but became a #willametteshirt 
8- another view of the #halifaxhoodie in merino sweatshirting from @wearethefabricstore 
Looking at this list makes me want to expand into other fabric companies and designers, and tackle more advanced projects. I'll share next year's make 9 tomorrow!

Just managed to finish my #vintagepledge2017 dress by the skin of my teeth. The pattern is my hack of Simplicity 6943 (which I think is from the 1980s) I made some changes to the pattern as the original design wasn’t very flattering on me. The fabric is from @atelierbrunette more photos coming to the blog soon!

I made some leggings with the #m2mleggings class from @zedessewingstudio. Excited to make leggings to fit my tall frame and small ankles. #sewingtall #memade #sewing
Last summer I turned a pair of woven pajama pants into a woven tee. It was challenging and super satisfying! I added some iron-on embroidery to the shoulders and that gingham is perfection!

I've spent the better part of 2017 learning to sew and it has brought me so much joy! Making my own clothes is powerful - especially considering how powerless shopping for clothes makes me feel at my height. I've made pants, skirts, tops, dresses, bags and gifts. I don't even think about shopping for clothes anymore. Instead I fantasize about fashion that would normally be out of reach, explore silhouettes in patterns and hoard the fabrics of my dreams. These are most of my makes in 2017. In 2018 I plan to learn and make even more...and definitely take better pictures! #sewingtall #sewing #mccallpatterncompany

currently at my parents' house working on my @colettepatterns Aster view B! in love with this cotton/linen blend from @robertkaufman. also slightly impressed with my ability to pick out matching thread when I was at the store without a swatch 😉

It's Christmas Eve...all my selfless secret sewing is finished - I even had time to make myself a dress for tomorrow - everything is wrapped, food all prepped, house is tidy and my list is complete. I am sitting contemplating a glass of something to celebrate my amazing organisational skills whilst not being able to shake a slightly nagging sense that I must have forgotten something....!
Merry Christmas to you, wherever you are, however you celebrate.  May the festive season bring you  love, laughter, peace and joy. 🎄🎅💖😚 Galaxy t-shirt is @sinclairpatterns Kai.  Mickey sweatshirt is a modified @grainline Linden in the softest fluffy backed fabric I've ever felt from @fabricland .  Christmas tree is an @dragonflysouldesigns production!

(12 Days of Christmas Tune) 🎶 A few days before Christmas I finally finished sewing -- 3 Panama Tees, 2 Panama Tee Dresses, 2 Seamly Basic Tees, and a pair of Hudson Pants! 🎶 (Did that work?? No? 🤔😂) When my mom came to visit at the beginning of November, we went fabric shopping at @fabrixsf and found so much gorgeous fabric! She asked me if I would sew a "few" things for her, and in return she bought me a bunch of fabric too! We leave for Utah on Saturday, and I am SO happy to have everything sewn AND COVER STITCHED! 😱 That's right. I finally used my machine and the stitching doesn't look terrible!! 🙌😄 Also, this is A LOT to sew for someone else, but I'm still repaying her for my horrible teenage years, and she never buys anything for herself. So now, I just make her things that for WAY better than anything she could find in a store. 👍 One more dress to sew for my sister and Christmas gifts are FINISHED! 🎉

This sweater/jacket was a surprisingly quick sew! Too bad the temperature went back up into the 70s today! I need some cooler weather so I can wear this! The pattern I used is Butterick 6330. I sized down and sewed a small. I added 3” to the sleeves and 2” to the body. #sewingtall The fabric is a stretchy sweater knit from @joann_stores, and I used knit interfacing from fashionsewingsupply.com on the facings and hems. Swipe for more photos! #b6330 #butterick6330 #butterick #butterickpatterns

The #siroccotop (and dress) from @coffeeandthread released today and I just had to make the dress after sewing the top during testing. I decided to keep the original length knowing it would be shorter than my personal preferred dress length. My idea was to wear it with tight jeans under and maybe a turtleneck. In other words I didn't expect to like it with just tights under but I do! This perfect fabric from @imaginegnats gives it such a great boho vibe. Go get this pattern while it's on sale. It's a GOOD one!

Just a few days post-op and attempting to dress like a human today for a shindig. You’ll have to take my word for it—beneath my much-loved #b6244 is a black crushed velvet #sadannidolmandress. My long-limbed friends, add length to Danni and plan on bracelet length sleeves even with 150cm wide fabric—that front piece is a fabric hog. #sewingtall #saskatoonsews #stylearc

Today's #ootd featured an old me-made pencil skirt in small brown/cream check and a more recent @seamworkmag Astoria in the softest ever cream ponte (and I have plenty of this soft loveliness left over for another project too). 💛  I made some mods to this Astoria as usual and also sized up - but I'm not sure I needed to looking at these photos now. Love the two items together though and enjoyed frolicking in the garden in the snow too! ❄❄

I’ll probably never get Marc to agree to a photo shoot in these, so here they are! Men’s Hudson Pants from @truebias in a @robertkaufman speckle jersey, or what I like to call Funfetti Fabric! I made a size 34 and added 2” at the lengthen line, since he’s 6’2” with long legs. Merry 🎄 #mudmarc .

So here is my #2017bestnine which unsurprisingly features a lot of blues! I only joined Instagram in May this year for Me Made May and I decided to stay as I loved connecting with so many lovely people from the sewing community. Thank you for the inspiration, all your likes and comments, and for your support in general. I look forward to seeing all your lovely makes throughout 2018!

Just casually hanging out by the mulberry tree wearing a reversible #wrapskirt made from a vintage Vogue #v9709 70s pattern. It is meant to wrap at the back. Interesting fact: it's harder to catch your skirt at the back than at the front in a gust of wind. Hence my now wearing it with the wrap at the front. Lesson learned.
