In the last week, I sent off my biggest order so far to Scotland. A combination of custom bags, pouches and some pendants. Packed neatly into a nice box and off they went.
I experimented with the packaging for the pendants that Andreas and I are making. Not sure if they will be a permanent fixture, but we are enjoying the creative process.
Tonight I spent some time drafting the patterns for and making the first of my range of kilts for the up and coming markets. The top bit of the kilt is meant to be worn under something. A simple cotton top and the bottom is a cotton/poly blend tartan -very easy to wash.
I have three different "tartans". One is a Black Stewart, and the other two are modern tartans red/gold and black/silver. I have hand pleated the kilts and pressed them with a chemical cloth. The design is a traditional wrap around design with the front panel being flat rather than pleated.
There is nothing nicer than a little girl (or boy) in a kilt. Now, can I get a pair of New Rocks to fit Tori? I have put the kilt up on etsy. Expensive, but all handpleated and pressed, it took me ages!
