The Tall Mama

  • Introducing our new Blogger... The Tall Mama

    I learnt to sew in High School Textiles & Design classes and have taught myself since then.  One of the things I love most about sewing is that there is always something new to learn.
    Being 183cm tall sewing my own clothes allows me to make clothes which actually fit my frame. The struggle to find clothing which fits well isn't unique to being tall, the majority of women don't fit into the "average" sizes offered in the shops. Making my own clothes ensures I have a closet full of clothes that fit well and that I love.
    As a Mama, nothing brings me more joy than making clothes for my girls. It has opened up a whole new world of bright colours and prints to sew with. I hope to teach my girls the value of handmade items and to pass on my love of sewing.
    I always strive to buy and use ethically made fabrics. With the prevalence of fast fashion, the quality of fabrics has declined. As we spend many hours and much love on our makes, we should use quality fabric that will last!
    Our online sewing community is such a supportive and encouraging one. I started my blog with the hopes of "giving back" to the sewing community I learn so much from.  I document my fails and wins, which is reflective of everyones sewing experience. As much as we want it to, not everything works out!  I hope to inspire others to go beyond their sewing comfort zone, because we learn so much when we push ourselves.
    I am so excited to partner with Husquvarna Viking! By using a machine with greater capabilities (the Designer Jade 35), it will allow me to expand my skills and creativity. 2018 is going to be a great sewing year!
