Making a kilt [From Bobbie Suttie, images copyright Jan Bruyndonckx and used with permission] A Kilt is basically a pleated, wrapped skirt. The back half of the kilt is pleated, the front half (apron) is the made of two overlapping panels. A true kilt is completely handmade. There are some small variations in my version, which I have added for ease of wear, such as adding Velcro across the front of the apron. The expression “The Whole Nine Yards” comes from the fact that a large man’s kilt is made of a nine-yard long piece of tartan material (Editor's note - this is one theory... see references below). Since high quality tartan costs $55 or more per 60-inch wide yard (yielding 2 yards of kilt material) you can see why a kilt is a lifetime investment.

Discovering the exquisite details of this aristocratic garment transports a man back to a romantic era of unsurpassed refinement and at the same time instills dismay at the proletarian substitute so ubiquitous today. The shirt body is made of broadcloth or a very lightweight fabric such as voile which will help the wearer to stay cool. It is constructed in a collarless “tunic” style to accommodate the requisite detachable collar which, along with the bosom and sleeve cuffs, are the only portions presented to admiring onlookers.
