Class last night went well as I started work on my kilt. It took two tries of experimental pleating to find the right ratio for a good drape, but now I have about a quarter of the pleats stitched in and the rest held in place with a tack stitich until I get to them. I'll add a waistband when I'm done, hem the bottom to the right lenght, and my teacher will show me how to do a "bullet" on the pleat at the hem, so that the pleats will stay in. One item that I'll need to have made eventually is the sporran, the pouch that hangs over the front apron of the kilt. I've seen one made out of fox hide, with the head draping over the top as the flap, so I really want one made out of skunk hide. I have the name of someone that makes them, so I'll see later. It would look something like this.


The shirt should be finished soon. I still think that I'd rather pay $35 for a shirt than deal with all of those damned gathers. But it will mean one more project completed. First I'll finish the kilt, probably next week, then the shirt, then I'll be done with the class. And I will have a whole new faire wardrobe for this coming season.

I may make Pari a matching kilt. I'll worry about that closer to faire season. Last thing I need is for her to outgrow her outfit months before faire. At least she won't take up too much yardage.

When you get pari's kilt done... if you don't post a pic we will hunt you down... that just sounds too damn cute.
