    Looking for an arisaid or gathered full length skirt for my wife

    I was just married in November to the girl of my dreams. We each have Scottish heritage and I am looking to surprise her with something nice. Where would I find either a fairly priced arisaid (or full length gathered skirt) or someone willing to make one of these from tartan fabric that I can easily provide.

    Technically the Arisaid is the wrap or blanket worn over the skirt and blouse. The ladies version of the Brat or forerunner of the great kilt.

    I wear the kilt because:

    You might want to consider a tartan screen (plaid) of the type show in Figs 10-12 here - Musings on the Arisaid and other female dress.

    Thank you, everyone! I have a number of ideas and believe that I have settled on one. I am sure there will be photos soon enough. Tapadh leibh!
