Kilt Pictures as Promised

Saturday, September 10, 2011

I had a great time today with my family up in Estes Park. The morning was spent watching the bagpipe and clan parade. After lunch we walked the town. I was on my feet from 8:30-5:00. It was a fun. Here are the pictures of the kilts and arisaid I made. The kilts I made this summer are my daughter's and son-in-law's. My daughter-in-law is wearing the arisaid. I made my husband's kilt last year and my son's kilt 10 years ago.


Son-in-law, granddaughter, son, daughter-in-law, daughter, husband, granddaughter



Answers to ?'s....
1. What were YOU wearing? Have you made yourSELF a kilt yet?
I was wearing a sash made from the Buchanan tartan. My clan (dad's mom side) is Buchanan. I haven't made myself a kilt yet because I want to be at goal before I do. Goal prize = kilt!

2. For some reason I thought they would all be the same plaid representing your "clan". How did you decide which plaids to use? Are they significant?
My husband's family heritage is the Fraser Clan and the Lindsey Clan. My son and wife are wearing the Hunting Fraser Tartan. My husband is wearing the regular Fraser tartan. My son-in-law has the Modern Weir Tartan. He isn't scottish so he picked a tartan based on the blue and yellow colors. My daughter is wearing the Western Isles Tartan. This is a general tartan that isn't associated with a clan. She picked it because it was purple and black.

    Wonderful blog! I am applauding you!

I have only made one single kilt and I decided on the Canadian tartan for one of our most easterly provinces.... the Nova Scotia tartan.

I had fallen in love with the "plaid" back in 1977 when I was working for a dollar a day. It was too expensive to buy fabric back then. I waited twenty years and made a full length kilt, a matching vest (waistcoat) and a shoulder scarf. I have lots of options for our old fashioned Robbie Burns' Night Feast.

LOVE the colours everyone chose. The entire outfit on your daughter in law is superb!

    I'm re-reading the Outlander series right now, and kilts are all over the place. Now I can see a better depiction in my mind!

    great job - i thought kilt colors signify different clans. Did you have to worry about that?
