Our Women's Kilt looks stunning in Superb. Magazine's July Issue as part of their Zephyr feature. Casper Fitzhue's photography in this feature is incredibly eye catching with bold black and white images throughout. The photography really shows off our Women's Kilt to perfection, and proves kilts aren't only for men to enjoy. The tartan featured in this issue is the MacQueen Modern a predominantly red tartan with black and yellow stripes throughout. Women's Kilt's have become increasing popular in recent years both as a mini kilt and in a traditional style. So exactly is a kilt made? Here's our ten step guide to making a traditional kilt below. Step One: Choosing your Tartan - There are over 500 Tartans to choose from on our website we have both Clan Tartans and Generic Tartans that can be worn by anyone if you are not associated with a particular Scottish Clan. Step Two: Selecting your size - The measurements needed to make a kilt are Waist, Hip and Length, we have a handy sizing guide on our website to help with this. Step Three: Preparing the Material - The material is laid out and measured ready to be transformed in to a kilt. Step Four: Marking Out - This is when the pleats of the kilt are measured out, this has to be done very carefully so that the front of the kilt is nicely centred. Step Five: Pleating - At this very intricate stage the fabric is pleated so that every pleat faces to the right, the depth of the pleat depends on the repeating pattern size or sett of your specific tartan. Step Six: Adjusting Hip & Waist - Now that the Pleats have been pinned in place the difference between the hip and waist is adjusted by adding small darts, strategically placed around the kilt. Step Seven: Stitching & Trimming Pleats - The pleats are now stitched in to place, and then the excess material can be trimmed. Step Eight: Fringing - Fringing is applied to the front of the kilt. Step Nine: Waistband & Lining - The waistband is now attached and stitched in to place to match up exactly with the rest of the tartan pattern. Step Ten: Adding Buckles & Straps - The leather buckles and straps are added to the kilt to allow the kilt to be adjusted when worn. The pleats are given a press to keep them in place and then the kilt is ready to wear. Making a kilt is a very skilled process and we a very grateful our local seamstresses have a wealth of experience when it comes to this process.
