I finished the Knotted Dress and submitted it for the Advanced Sewing Techniques certification with BurdaStyle. I love the color of this fabric.

The color didn’t translate to the close up of the pleats and front twist.

We went to Kilmarnock, Virginia (about 2.5 hours away) where our youngest lives and is a member of the Kilmarnock & District Pipe Band. She joined the band almost 2 years ago when she decided that she should learn to play the bagpipes. This was the band’s 20th annual Burns Night Dinner & Concert. This was the first concert that “M” played in. She also read a poem and she carried in the Haggis. Her father has now dubbed her the “Haggis Queen”.

Of course, there was scotch. One of the other guest seated at our table was sharing his. I really liked this so I took a picture just in case I could remember the name of it later. With a name like that, how could I forget?

The band is small but, they have a good time. It was a lot of fun.

A mini family photo. And yes, I do own other clothes. I just like wearing my new makes. I need a tartan for next year’s celebration.

Any others out there who celebrated Robert Burns birthday?

Happy Sewing.

  1. Bagpipes! There’s a challenge. We used to celebrate Burns night and it was such fun. I was only saying we needed to start again to hubby yesterday.

    Lovely dress, Robyn! And thanks for the Burns night photos. Sorry to say I never remember and don’t know anyone round here who celebrates. Glad to know you do! xx
