1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Quick kilt on: December 08, 2009 12:11:32 PM

My sister had a work Christmas party lined up last week where everyone was to go in national dress. Now being as how we're Scottish it had to be a kilt, the one problem with this was that my sister lives in Denmark and I'm buried in darkest Essex. So as I was heading out to visit her I made up a quick version of a kilt to take out for her. It's pretty basic, I used a metre of tartan with half for the main part of the skirt, a waistband and the remainder for a (very narrow) plaid. This is really a costume piece, there is no where near enough fabric in the folds to make a proper kilt and the waistband is pretty rough but I imagine we'll both get more use out of it. Please excuse the quality of these pictures it got pretty crushed in transit.

You know I've been wrestling with the same problem for a while now and the is the best answer I've seen. Now all I need to do is find someone to borrow a drill off.

This is great, I can see why you had to have it and I love how much it became part of your trip.

Thanks for the comments guys. This is actually pretty close to my real handwriting, I wrote it out on scrap paper first, flipped it and traced onto the back of my fabric to act as I guide. I didn't follow my outline slavishly but it did help me keep thing in place.

My boyfriends birthday was on Friday and as the game he'd asked for wasn't going to be delivered on time I thought I'd make him a gift for the day. We've been together for 4 years now and I have to admit that I've never been very good at romantic gestures so when I saw lilininjabear's project http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311126.0 I new it would be the perfect gift.

Although I used to be really keen on cross stitch I've never really done this sort of embroidery so I made it simpler by stitching the background notebook lines on my sewing machine and embroidering the message on afterwards. I'm sure the stitching could be better and I may need to mount it again in the future but this is one project where the the message means more than the finished project. Needless to say Gordon loves it.

this is great, I really want a tunic now, my embroidery won't be a match for yours though.
