When I think of the times I’ve sewn a big ruffle onto the bottom of Jewel’s skirts…

Or passed on a skirt that might have been good for me “if only it was a little longer”.


As a tall family, that is a constant battle.

I knew genius the moment I discovered Make Me Modest. :)

A mother and daughter team designed and created these amazing little numbers, which are thin and lightweight in the top portion, then add length in a great variety of colors and styles.

They’ve even got some new things working, like sleeve extenders!

Make Me Modest sent me an extender to review, made to my specifications. They were amazingly helpful and patient in figuring out how to accommodate all of my various questions and special requests.

The extender is amazing! The design is clever, the workmanship is excellent… Even the packaging was a treat to receive.

I did decide, after trying it on, that I had picked entirely the wrong extender for the skirt I wanted to extend. Ah, well. I’m definitely ordering a different one, and one for Jewel as well!

The good news for you is that I’m going to give away the extender I received!

Sadly, the lovely packaging is gone, but you will receive a like-new (tried on but never worn or washed), white, Eliza style extender, Size XL, made extra long to 36″, with extra coverage upwards (to account for a slit or kick-pleats in your skirt).

  1. I love the Miri Style and wow they have sleeve extenders! Their page is going in my Fave’s!!

  2. I like the Susie style extender

  3. I like the kick pleat. I’ve never even heard of something like this, way cool!

  4. I have been doing this for years for my little girls (now 21, 23, & 24). I love the different styles… I think my favorite is the Susie Style. Awesome!

  5. I like Susie and Miri best. I make my girls’ skirts longer, but never thought to do it to mine. I pass over skirts for all of us all the time. Making skirts longer takes time and material.
