I don't know about you but I am not the sort of person who can shoe horn two 1970's full length tartan kilts into her winter wardrobe. Not even one with a matching waistcoat.
But I love the colours and the quality of the 100% wool. I merrily watched the last series of the Sewing Bee thinking I can do all that until Kilt week came around then I went week at the knees. All that pleat marking and accuracy would drive me crazy.
They were given to me by my good friend Lucy while she was clearing out her nan's house after she had passed away. They took a lot of stuff to the charity shop but Lucy and her mum thought I could do them justice. I hope I have....
I love them and they will be a major part of my winter wardrobe for years to come. There are of course the huge pieces I cut off the bottom - what do you think I should make with those?
