    My first great kilt!

    I picked up 5 yards of double wide Colquhoun pv for a great price in Edinburgh over the weekend.

    Given my wool allergy, this was an amazing find. I was a bit worried about the way it would fall and swing, but so far it looks great.

    Did a great job pleating it! Just remember they don't have to be perfect.

    PV is no where near as bad as acrylic... acrylic goes off like a grass skirt...

    I wanted to test the flammability of it... So I took some scrap and lit it up. It dosent burn like I expected. It smouldered before catching. I think I would have to sit in the campfire, which brings about a whole new set of problems.
