Blog # 20 The Making of Flashes 1 of 2

Part one of two...

Step one cut 4 pieces of similar Tartan Pieces.  Note the weave is mirrored, forming a delta wing or chevron.  These particular pieces match the front center of the Gig Line of this Kilt. 


The sides are then sewn together and turned right side out.  The next step is to then press flat.  

After pressing flat, the tops are folded over and down making a channel for the garters.  

the bottoms are trimmed forming chevrons on the flashes. 


Flashes are finished and ready for the garters.


Finished Product.
