It's tartan to look a lot like Christmas

My darling Clementine's Christmas outfit arrived this weekend and I couldn't wait to share it with her.

Doesn't she look divine?

She, of course, is thrilled to wear a tartan like me.

Of course.

Just please don't make the common mistake of calling this a plaid dress. 

A tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors. Tartans were originally made of colored, woven wool, but now they are made in many other materials including taffeta (my skirt) or satin (Clementine's skirt and jacket). 

A plaid is a pleated cloth worn with a kilt, made from the same tartan and worn over the shoulder and fastened at the front.
