Blog 3B Time Lapse of Sewing Pleats; 18 down, 12 to go...

18 pleats sewn, 12 to go.... On a Black Isle Tartan Kilt. It's a Custom Traditional Hand Sewn Kilt.

Time Lapse of sewing the middle of the back pleats. Time consuming process,  Spiral stitch so it will not pop.  The reason for the difference is a Spiral stitch has a much higher tensile strength.  A straight stitch has a much lower rating, this is why Machine Sewn kilts can fail. Hand Sewn Kilts are much stronger.
