Just checking in to show that progress is being made on kilts of all shapes and sizes. I am trying to upload a couple of pictures to show that before pressing, kilts do not look AT ALL like the finished product. The brown/gray kilt below is Weathered Murray of Atholl–a beautiful color combination. You can see that it is a work in progress–you are seeing 2 evenings’ work, and I have about 6 pleats left to do. You can see the chalk marks, the basting and all of the little unevennesses that will disappear when the kilt is finished.
The purple kilt is nearly done–I have to put on one more buckle, one strap, and the lining. Then all of that basting has to come out. I just wanted people to see that the work all looks like the cat slept in it before it’s pressed and finished.
Next week I will be in King of Prussia, PA at the Marguerite Reid Memorial Highland Dance Workshop. This is a really fun time–I get to see everyone, chat, catch up, and generally help my customers get ready for the upcoming competition season.
So, come and say Hi if you’re going to the workshop–I’d love to meet everyone who reads my blog.
