    Thanks to Father Bill!

    Tarheel, my OP was a question on what other ladies wear for events. I'm challenged in the sewing skills, so I had someone make my bodice. But I too want to see photos from scots3rdgen.
    I think you captured a very cool look with that outfit. Perhaps someone here already mentioned it, but you might also consider wearing an arisaid. During a recent highland event, a female friend arranged a rather large amount of tartan on the ground and folded sections into pleats. She then, with assistance, belted it with a medieval style belt, and pinned the upper portion with a Celtic brooch.

    I would love to get an arisaid. Especially in our tartan. Alas, McAlister tartan does not come easily, so my rosette will have to do for now.

    That turned out very well! You look lovely in it.

    Have you gotten to wear it out yet?

    Thank you!

    I have not gotten to wear it for an event yet. But, I might give it a test run on Halloween to see what adjustments need to be made for an all day event.
