mine's cheapo poly-cotton as well, but wow, is it nice and cool during summer competitions in the hot sun. i love my national - it's orange and purple, the vest being purple with orange lacings and the "tartan" is a made-up one from the fabric store called "halloween," it's orange, purple, and black.

i like the Cottons better anyways. The atcual tartans look funny, becuase i thinkt hey should be on a kilt!!

Although i think Dress Lorne looks nice as an aboyne. But i would prefer it as a kilt!!

I'll post pics of my new aboyne once i finsih it.

Mine is a cotton print that I got from a fabric store, but I'm getting a new Aboyne and I'm almost 100% positive that I will get a tartan print since there are so many lovely ones. I'm very excited!

I made my daughter's aboyne in a genuine dress tartan (Earl of St. Andrew's). Not only that, but it is a Dalgleish tartan (a bit heavier), and I put a 4 inch hem in it (so I can keep altering it and it will "grow" with her). I have the spare tartan from above where the plaid was cut so I can put on bigger waistbands. One thing - as she grows, it won't get any heavier! I'll keep having to make vests, though ... she's wearing a dark navy petal vest with this aboyne.

Mine is cotton tartan print. I like it more because it flows easily and it is lighter than the wool. It is also a very pretty colour. The plaidy is better in wool I think though because they look more separate from the tartan print.

My daughters is made from poly-cotton, with no specific plaid (that I know of). Its nice in the summer, not as hot as the wool.

i don't think i have seen cotton aboyne skirts (unless i have seen them and not realised - whoops!) are they just the same as the skirts except cotton instead of wool?? mine is a tartan made from wool- dress scotland the brave i believe - i had it made ages ago, but still really liked the colours so haven't changed it, people went through a phase of wearing white dresses over, but more seem to be wearing the skirts instead at the moment

I just finished my daughter's new national. Its Dress Eildon with a prussian blue vest. Her first national was wool, but not a real tartan, and the second was a cotton/poly material, also not a real tartan. They were all beautiful. :)

I just made my daughter a national and I found the fabric at Wal-Mart. And it turned out to be a dress stewart, and it's pretty nice.
