    Congratulations on the weight loss, no mean feat, and it's nice that you can celebrate by wearing your kilts again, bit of a win win situation ( sorry for the cliché).

    My kiltmaker says she can alter my hand sewn wool kilts. When I stabilize plan a trip to Albuquerque to get personally measured and bring the kilts to her.

    Its been easier to sell off my polyviscose and leather kilts and use the meager proceeds to buy new kilts when I stabilize.

    But yes, your kiltmaker should be able to alter your kilts.

    Out of the mouths of babes, as they say. Bless her.

    I no longer have any expensive kilts, so wouldn't be an issue. I can't justify the expense.

    So Christmas Day sashayed out to Christmas lunch all kilted up in my new smaller Scott Weathered Green tartan.

    It DOES feel REALLY GOOD to be kilted out and about again.

    And, it was actually a joy to have a lady I've never met come over to our table and say she loved my kilt. And our waitress said she was Clan Irwin and that her brother had an Irwin tartan kilt and he kilted up too.

    Kilts just make any outing fun.

    I've only walked the dogs in it so far. Nicer weather would help. Anyway, I'm glad you had a nice time.
