Kilts - some assembly required

I'm in SO much trouble. Here's several hundred dollars of wool from Scotland.

The top length is for a skirt for me, it's 10 ounce tartan. The bottom piece is for a "tank" - a hand sewn, traditional kilt - for JC in the heavy kilt weight Strome (16 ounce wool).

He's really started to get in touch with his Scot's heritage. I think, in part, because KT is so proud of her Irish heritage. That's a good thing, I think, but it brings with it a ton of new potential fiber addictions LOL.

Despite the difference in the intesity of the green stipes, they are the same tartan, the variance is due to them being from different mills and different weights. The tartan is MacKenzie, ancient colorway.
