Kilt Progress: The Scary Part!

You know those pleats I worked so hard on? Now I have to slice a chunk out each one–on the inside, of course–to decrease the bulk. In the photos the top of the kilt is down. I take a deep breath and call on courage from my Scottish ancestors before making the first cut. When they are all done, without any slips that would have completely ruined my beautiful wool fabric, I sigh in relief and have a glass of wine.
