have you heard about Stumptown Kilts? its a newish portland business that makes everyday kilts. up until now they've been making only mens kilts, but just launched the women's and women's mini kilt. here i'm wearing the women's kilt, 17" length. i ended up with the black pinstripe and LOVE it! the waist is adjustable up to five sizes, its made to fit a womans curves, is super comfortable, and the quality is outstanding. this will be really cute with tights and boots in the fall!
