Loved the pattern and detailed instructions. I feel like I could see a real kilt. The chillies were fun to make.
This pattern contains the Highland Kilt, Highland Socks and Highland Ghillies. You can use this pattern bundle on it's own or use is to round out either the Boy's Highland bundle or the Girl's Highland bundle or both! All 3 included patterns have easy to follow instructions and give a great fit on your doll. The kilt is amazing. I never knew how a modern dress or dance kilt was constructed until working on this pattern. The pleats are all in the back and you pleat it so that the plaid pattern matches up and you don't know the pleats are there until they swirl open. The kilt has an adjustable waist so you can fit it to your doll. The Highland socks are so cute! The pattern includes a lot of patterns that you can print out to iron on the knit material (I used a white tee shirt and it worked well) or you can trace the design onto the socks with fabric markers and a light box. Both give a satisfactory look. The Highland Ghillies pattern is fun and fairly easy.
You have to buy this one! This is the bundle which includes the kilt, socks and ghillies. The whole collection is great. I made both the boy's and girl's Highland outfits, and have reviewed each of the separate patterns individually, so please look at each. Great instructions, great fit. You're going to love the details.
There is so much information included in this pattern! You will not only earn how to make a kilt, but why it is made that way and the story of different plaids. The ghillies are very realistic and with the argyle socks (and there are several ways to get that argyle perfect included) set off the entire outfit. A must buy for any fan of Scottish dress!
