A Mini Kilted Kiwi- Part 2

So who was I kidding?...

There was no way on earth that I was going to get away with making a ScotsMAN costume for Rascal, a wee Highland dancer it is...

 So here's the next part of her outfit, a green velvet waistcoat complete with pom poms in place of silver military style buttons and fancy machine stitching instead of silver brocade trim around the edge.


Again, I'm ridiculously proud of my effort. Another tartankiwi original one off pattern which couldn't be repeated even if I wanted to. This time made using only fabrics from my feeble stash (yay!).

I had a wee look to see if I could find photos of me in my highland dancer garb when I was younger, but the photos seem to have been misplaced... phew! You'll just have to compare my effort to this piccie on wikipedia instead.
