Finished Kilt

popageko | Posted in Photo Gallery on

Here it is1 My wife didnt believe I made it myself until I showed her the poor stitching inside that is the only proof I have. I have been wearing it, and have gotten an overall great response. Even a few requests to make some for others, hhhmmmmm!

    I think it's terrific but I want to see another picture.  Would you mind taking a picture of the kilt not being worn?  The current pictures are a little dark and we want to see every stitch. (almost)  It looks like it fits perfectly!  Congratulations!      rjf

      I would like to get a picture of it alone I just cant get any detail to show up. Will keep trying.

    Wow! Looks like a great job--I hope you can post a couple of additional photos with more light (I know, it's hard to do--that's why I don't post any pictures!). If you get into making these for others, be sure to figure your prices fairly--you don't want to cheat yourself. Meanwhile, have you ever seen this site: http://www.utilikilts.com? In case you ever feel the need to move beyond wool tartan...

    Three Cheers for you!  Humans should never outgrow that wonderful "I made it myself" pride.  Is this your first?  If so, double the cheers and a glass of Laphroaig in your honor.

    I'm curious: How did you make a kilt without your wife being aware of the entire process?  I actually have a little room set aside for my weaving, but I still take up major family space for winding the warp and some of the finishing processes.  I can't imagine making a kilt without converting the dining room to a "pleatery."

      I wondered about that too!  There are always piles of projects so my husband knows I'm keeping busy.  The pleatery.......good word.      rjf

    Congratulations - the pleating looks quite good - oddly, i can see it a bit better on my rinky dink home computer than i could on the 'good' system at work.

    Good work!
