Marcon prep #7

The only progress I've made is on my beau's kilt. I had to make a new waistband as the previous one was too short. Matching the plaid when possible, it was machine sewed on then turned under and pinned to the inside. I'm currently about halfway through hand stitching the waistband down. I actually folded it almost in quarters instead of in half because it worked better. The kilt is so bulky along the pleats that the waistband would have been floppy at the top otherwise. So all I have to do is finish the hand sewing of the waistband and sew on a few hook closures. I'm thinking of doing four - two on each side of the flap.

A bientot mes amis!
