Ladieswear: Kilted Skirts & Fashionwear

On this page we are pleased to present our range of tartan kilted skirts and fashion wear. In addition to our kilted skirts, you will find a variety of interesting items including tartan capes, a formal jacket, a jabot blouse, two versions of the classic tartan ball sash, and some lovely tartan scarves.

All of our our skirts are made of Locharron’s Reiver fabric and are available in 500 tartans. The Reiver is a premium 100% new wool, twill-weave fabric with a lovely soft handle. This 10 oz fabric was specifically designed for women’s skirts. The sett size (the size of the checks in the tartan) is somewhat smaller that that found in the men’s heavier fabrics as the smaller setts are much more flattering for women’s garments.

With each of the garments using the Reiver fabric we have included a link that will allow you to check if the tartan you seek in available and to actually view a sample. We hope you find this feature useful.

By the way, you will also find some Canadian Provincial tartans and some Irish tartans in this Reiver range.

 

Standard Kilted Skirt

skirt_kilted_lc.jpgThis is a popular low-cost version of the kilted skirt. The pleats are shallow and so it uses much less fabric that the ladies’ Semi Kilt shown below. The price difference between this garment and the Semi Kilt shown below reflect the difference in the amount of fabric required by the traditional deep kilt-style pleating on the Semi Kilt.

It has an apron front and a pleated back. It is machine stitched and mounted with the traditional straps and buckles. You can see an enlarged and more detailed version of the photo by clicking  here.

The Semi Kilt is made to order of 100% Pure New Wool in any of the Locharron Reiver range of over 500 tartans. To find if your tartan is available and view a sample you need only to click here. Then click on the name of the tartan in the list that appears and you will see a sample.

Please note that the maximum length for this skirt is 72/74cm (28/29”). If you are looking for a longer skirt, please see our Hostess Skirt below. The maximum hip at this price is 112cm (44”), but larger sizes can be made for a small surcharge. If you would like to have a self-measurement form, please click here.

Delivery is typically about 6 weeks.

Semi-Kilt with Deep Pleats

skirt_semikilt_lc.jpgThis is a true kilt skirt. It is pleated in the proper kilt style of one pleat per each repeat of the sett. This means that the pleats are much deeper than those found in the Standard Kilted Skirt. This gives the skirt the grace and swing of a proper kilted garment. It also means that the pattern of the tartan can be properly reproduced across the back of the skirt.

The price difference between this Semi Kilt and the Standard Kilt shown above reflect the difference in the amount of fabric required by the proper deep kilt-style pleating. You can see an enlarged and more detailed illustration of the deeper pleats by clicking here.

Ladies’ Formal Jacket

jacket_ladies_sml.jpgThis is the ladies’ version of the very stylish  men’s Prince Charlie jacket. It works very well with our regular length or hostess length kilted skirts. With a hostess-length skirt it is usually worn with a ladies’ jabot blouse, while with a standard length skirt a variety of dressy blouse designs can work well.

The Ladies’ Formal Jacket is specifically cut to a woman’s pattern. The buttoned tail flap that is characteristic of the men’s Prince Charlie, but rather unflattering to most women, has been removed and the women’s jacket is cut straight around with waist curving to a slight dropped point in the centre of the back.

The jacket is made of a black polyester fabric and mounted with silver buttons.

As shown in the photograph, this jacket worn with our mid-length Semi Kilt and Jabot Blouse works well for semi-formal dressy functions. For more formal functions, our floor length hostess skirt adds that extra touch to meet the occasion.
