Harris Tweed - Feileadh beag
This afternoon I just finished sewing the 16 belt loops to the inside of my new winter Feileadh Beag. I've always wanted to make a kilt out of Harris Tweed tartan and when I found a Japanese retailer that imported it , I purchased 3 mtrs of double width, cut it in half and sewed it together and then added 16 belt loops to the inside for the drawstring. I did another kilt like this and it works very well and is easy to put on. At present it's just a wee bit hot for wearing this but later on I'll post some photos of me wearing it once the weather here is cooler.
