    First kilt for my grandson

    Our daughter called up the other night and said that she had just received a onesie for her 2-month-old baby that says "Pants Are Over-rated". She thought it was too good an opportunity to pass up - he needed a kilt to go with it before he outgrew the onesie. Took me an hour or so to make a teeny weeny kilt out of some PV that I got from Rocky awhile back. Thought I'd post a few pics. I included my sewing scissors for scale - that is one little kilt. Tartan is Murphy/Tara, hand stitched, of course. And for you kiltmakers - ironically, it's the only kilt I've ever made where the top band matches the tartan in the apron, the underapron, _and_ the pleats center back!

    Gorgeous, wee kilt, Barb! Stephanie and I will definitely need a couple of these for when we have a couple of wee bairns ourselves. So very cute!

    Best grandmother ever. Just wondering....can I order a couple of those for my calves? I'm thinking a new trend here-"pleated kilt hose". What a lucky young lad.

    Barb your work is always wonderful but this wee kilt raises the bar what with the lining up of the waistband. Must have been all the love you poured into it.
