    Man.....That is probably the best Rosette ever. You know, many pipers , as well as others, wear rosettes instead of kilt pins. A shame they are so hard to find and that no one is making them and selling them. Especially in the quality you've just made........Oui, je vous donne une allusion Robert

    Most outstanding sir! The pics make an easy to follow guide to those like myself that have a few more thumbs than fingers.

    A couple of years ago, I talked a friend into attending Burns Night with me. She was a fellow veteran of the U.S. Navy, and in thanks for her friendship over the years and for attending with me, I gave her a commercially made rosette in Edzell tartan.

    Robert, yours is far better made than the one I obtained from a commercial source, and looks... amazing. Thank you for sharing your sense of style, not just with this item, but with all the things you post here. You make this a better place.

    Wouldn't a French gentleman sporting a white rosette on his bonnet, regardless if he was wearing a kilt or not, be showing his support for the royalist or Bourbon cause than for a show of Jacobite sentiment?

    Must be just me as I just yesterday finished reading Marie Antoinette.

    btw, I have a Threads magazine article that deals with making several styles of rosettes. If anyone is interested maybe I can scan and post?

    Yes you are right. But I wouldn't wear it without a kilt.

    We are more than interested in your Threads magazine article that deals with making several styles of rosettes.
    Could you please either post them on this thread ?



    Best,

    Robert

    Great job, Robert and you wear it with such panache. Looks cold there however.
