It has taken me awhile to find this thread! I am so excited to know there are others out there who deal with the same fitting issues I do! I am 6" tall and wear a 12AAA shoe. (Lucky you tall bean only a AA) You can all understand my excitment at finding a RTW pair of jeans that are extra Long (barefoot I walk on the hems). Even better I didn't have to drive to a big city (4 hours) or order on-line.

It has taken me several years to learn where to add length and I am still learning. Skirts are my favorite to sew - so easy to add length.

Hi Lisa - Somehow your post got its own thread (I did the same thing last week - lol), but I wanted to respond to your post. I'm glad you found the tall gal thread. I'm over 6'3" and wear between 11 and 12 shoes depending on the brand. It's great to have a place here on PR where we can discuss our challenges and help each other when we find something that works.
