Tartanista Skirts and Kilts

Post by photoguy207 »

I just discovered Tartanista Skirts and Kilts while looking for a kilt on Amazon for St Patricks Day. I did a search on the forum and see they have been talked about here over the years and I never checked them out before.

I ordered this:
https://www.amazon.com/Tartanista-Irish ... r=8-3&th=1

I ordered it on Feb 14th and it arrived Feb 22nd, way ahead of the March 2nd to 16th time frame.

I got a size 18 and it fits perfectly and I wear size 38 pants. It is the 20" kilt skirt, I wanted that because the kilt version is 24" and it is too long for me. Fabric is really nice. Has a button to fasten the inside and two straps for the outside of the wrap. It comes with a pin. Might have to get the black too.

I plan on wearing it on St Patricks Day along with a sweater I got in Gallway when visiting Ireland 2 years ago.

Hi Photoguy,
A few years ago I too ordered two Tartanista 'kilted skirts, which close on the left, or Womens' side, but who'd notice ? They are made of soft woven wool and won't hold their crisp shape like more expensive kilts. That said, they are OK, but skimp on material, so the front overlap is incomplete, but the 'free' pin should hold the hem in place, so no gap will occur as you do the 'Riverdance' or whatever!

Later on I invested in a Thompson Camel kilted skirt from Kilts & More. This has plenty of material for tight pleats at the back, sewn down some 7 inches from the waist, also a full front overlap, which has a nice weight to it. They're all 23", required to reach to the top of my knee, which I like. Standard 24" on me reaches official mid-knee. That is formal and better for weddings &c.

I love the look and feel, paired with some Snag tights and Dr Martens.

ASDA, Tescos, any place really. Choose your denier and off you go.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.
