Murray of Atholl Ancient Kilt: 23 pleats

If I hadn’t been out nearly every night last week and busy working outside all last weekend, I would have finished the pleats already… as it is, I’ve managed to sneak one or two in just about every day, and it’s gone fast. I should have the pleats finished by the weekend, and if I can keep pushing every day over the next couple of weeks I ought to have this kilt finished in time for the Atholl Highlanders’ visit on June 2.

For this kilt I wanted to do things properly, and so I ordered some heavyweight Hymo hair canvas from B. Black & Sons. My timing was good; it arrived today, and it will be ready when I need it before too much longer.
