    Jonesing For My IOS Rebuild

    I finally moved to the top of the queue!
    Bought this Josh Brown kilt secondhand about 1 1/2 years ago. I hemmed it because it was about 2 1/2" too long. I love it but it never fit quite right. It was made for someone with a smaller tailgate.
    Bonnie is doing a top down rebuild for me, she hopes to get me 2" more room at the hip.

    Having a large backside can make a significant difference to the appearance of a kilt as I have found out the hard way; fortunately my more respectable ones are made to measure.
    If you are going to do it, do it in a kilt!

    Bonnie let me know that she finished the rebuild and has dropped it in the mail. I should receive my "New" kilt on Thursday.
